ME to issue new PJ passports for Myanmar migrant workers in Thailand

The Myanmar Embassy to Thailand notified the issuance of new PJ passports (passports for the job) to Myanmar national workers in Thailand who need to renew their passports and MOU representatives on 24 November.
There are difficulties in the passport renewal of Myanmar migrant workers who hold 2015, 2016 and 2017-issued passports due to COVID-19 infections.
Thus, a passport renewal project for expired-PJ passport holders will be conducted at the Myanmar Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand between 1 and 31 December.
A statement was published by the embassy that around 22,000 Myanmar migrant workers who hold passports expired in 2020-2021 were left in factories and outdoor workplaces in Thailand. Thus, the embassy notified MOU representatives to collect the list of those migrant workers and report to U Myo Zaw Thaung and Daw Khin Malar Win from the consulate not later than 30 November.
In addition, Myanmar workers who hold PJ passports that expired in 2022 will be serviced with passport renewal, as usual, starting from 3 January 2023. — TWA/GNLM
