Police in Vietnam discovered six foreign border jumpers as they were traveling along a northern expressway last weekend.

The foreigners were transported in an automobile driven by 32-year-old Le Van D., a resident from the northern province of Thai Nguyen, along the Bac Giang - Lang Son Expressway on Saturday.

The car was pulled over by a group of traffic police and immigration officers.

The six foreign men were unable to present their ID or necessary documents required for entry into Vietnam, according to Lieutenant Colonel Nguyen Truong Son, a police official in charge of patrolling the expressway.

They admitted to having entered Vietnam illegally via a trail in the northern province of Lang Son.

The border jumpers were heading to other northern provinces to find a job.

All of them, as well as the automobile, have been handed over to the Immigration Department for further verification.

VnExpress quoted Lieutenant Colonel Son as saying that his team of traffic police officers had coordinated with other units to capture dozens of foreign border jumpers along the Bac Giang - Lang Son Expressway since late 2020.

Stretching 64 kilometers, the expressway was open to traffic in September 2019 to enhance trade and attract more investment to the border province of Lang Son, as well as shorten travel time between the area and Hanoi.
