Abstract

The purpose of this research study was to investigate methods of prevention and problem solutions caused by Cambodian illegal immigration. The qualitative research method was designed. Key informants included administrators working on prevention of illegal immigration. The research instrument for data collection was the interview form. Data collection was done by the researchers. Individual key informants were contacted; scheduled for date, time and place; and in-depth interviewed. The information gained from the interview was concluded and analyzed for several main issues. Finally, the findings were presented in an essay form composed and organized relevant to the research purpose.            


            The major finding revealed that Cambodian illegal immigration could be divided into two major forms. First, legal Cambodian migrants ignored to renew their work permits after expiration. Second, Cambodians migrated illegally. Despite Thai officials’ various prevention methods were practiced - setting permanent border crossing, setting check points, patrolling, and utilizing of technology to prevent Cambodian illegal migrants; illegal immigration still occurs. As a result, responsible offices seek for various methods of problem solutions: mass relation practicing both at Thai and Cambodian borders, assisting illegal labor into a legal system, increasing penalties for entrepreneur and traders, for example.  The results performed by the Thai government sector decreased illegal immigration.
