C of I issuing office in Chiang Mai.

Since the number of applicants for the certificate of identity (C of I) has been fewer, C of I centres in Thailand will provide service until 6 July, as announced by the Myanmar Embassy’s Labour Attache Office in Thailand.
The announcement on the C of I application states that the C of I issuing was begun on 23 February 2024 in order to help Myanmar migrant workers to be able to work officially in Thailand, and Cs of I were issued for those who registered in the Thailand Employment Department.
It is initially planned to stop centres for C of I on 30 June 2024. However, the Myanmar Ministry of Labour will extend it to 6 July 2024 in order to help Myanmar workers be efficient, and due to the request by the Thai Employment Department, it said,
Five C of I centres were set up in Patong Division, Samut Prakan, Samut Sakhon, Chonburi and Surat Division, and three mobile unit camps were stationed in Chiang Mai, Nakhon Sawan and Songkhla provinces on 23 February 2024.
C of I process, date and time for applying C of I and contact numbers for inquiry are provided, and applicants should go in person, not via brokers, so that they don’t need to pay more, the Ministry of Labour urged when centres for C of I were initiated.
“I’ve heard the closure of C of I centres will be temporary for now because the number of applicants has been fewer. We all have waited for further announcements on how officials from both parties would continue to provide it. It is still uncertain,” said a Myanmar national in Thailand. – MT/ZS
