Following the growing number of foreigners who come to invest and work in Cambodia, the country’s Ministry of Labour said that it will make an announcement soon to ban foreigners from self-employment on 10 types of jobs including driving a taxi, tuk-tuk, or motor taxi; or being a street vendor, barber, delivery man, or other small occupations. The ministry will also prohibit foreigners from taking up positions as human resources managers or employees in private enterprises.
This came in response to a question asked on 15 July as to whether a foreigner could freely work and run businesses in Cambodia. The ministry’s spokesman Heng Sour answered the question, saying that a foreigner could invest, run business, and work in the Kingdom by following the investment, immigration, and labour laws.
