Interior minister Sar Kheng has instructed all residence owners around the country of the need to report foreigners who come to stay in their residences to strengthen  immigration law enforcement.

According to the statement of  the interior minister, it said that since the interior ministry issued a statement since 2010, the ministry has concluded that a majority of residence owners have respected the law but some residence owners still did not understand  their obligation and also did not respect the law.

“To strengthen immigration law enforcement and to improve the registration of  foreigners residing in the country is necessary to ensure  security, public order and social safety,” the statement said.

The interior ministry provided a memorandum which contained  seven points including such as the requirement for all  residence owners to report foreigners residing in their property to the commune police officials in their location within 24 hours and in case, residence owners are foreigners, they must provide additional information of the people residing in the properties within 24 hours.

The statement added that General Department of Immigration has a responsibility  to implement and disseminate the memorandum and its contents to residence owners and all relevant officials around the country.
