Myanmar received 109 migrant workers — 101 men and 9 women — on the evening of 25 September at the Kawthoung border gate. They were handed over by officials from Thailand’s Ranong Immigration Department.
The workers were repatriated to Myanmar after paying penalties and facing action under Thai law for holding expired visas and working in Thailand without proper documentation. Officials from the Kawthoung District and Township General Administration Department, the Labour, Immigration and Population Department, the Anti-Trafficking in Person Police Force, the Labour Department, and the Disaster Management Department received the migrant workers. The Township Public Health Department provided the necessary healthcare to the workers and thereafter, they were sent back to their native towns. —Kyaw Soe (Kawthoung)
