Chinese nationals residing in Guyana are being urged to ensure that all their documents are in order to avoid having to face the full penalty of the law, the Government Information Agency (GINA) reported yesterday.
During a meeting held yesterday at the Chinese Embassy to educate nationals on the importance of proper documentation and the correct procedure that should be used, Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee urged that they take documentation seriously.
According to GINA, Rohee told them “Documentation is extremely important. You always have to ensure that your documents are in order and that your stay is regularized. The consequences could be very severe because the law could be very unkind.”
And the home affairs minister also advised the nationals to desist from paying bribes and to use the relevant agencies to seek assistance – the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Chinese Embassy, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
“I want to emphasize that you should avoid indulging in bribery. This is not abiding by the laws of Guyana
