Chinese people have been found illegally entering Vietnam for various reasons including seeking ways to Cambodia according to the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security.

Chinese people were detained in Quang Ninh Province.

Speaking at the Government's regular press meeting on August 3, Chief of the Office of the Ministry of Public Security and spokesman, Maj. Gen. To An Xo said that the country has recently reported a rising number of illegal entries from some neighbouring countries through the borders.

"They include Vietnamese workers who worked in neighbouring countries without contracts and Chinese citizens," the official said. "Due to continuous natural disasters and the virus outbreak in China, they entered Vietnam to seek jobs while some were on holiday or sought ways to move to Cambodia for gambling."

According to a report from the ministry, as many as 504 Chinese people have been found to illegally enter Vietnam in 27 provinces and cities since the beginning of this year. Since June, local public security forces and border guards have uncovered 21 cases involving 177 illegal Chinese immigrants, and launched criminal proceedings against 19 Vietnamese and several Chinese in five cases.

Xo also suggested issuing suitable policies for illegal Vietnamese immigrants, most of them illegal workers in China.
