As there are some delays in making payments for the Certificate of Identity (CI), Myanmar migrant workers in Thailand would like to see a facilitated process for it.
Due to such delays, only a few workers have come to get CI booklets.
“It has been one month, and we can’t make payments for CI. So, there are fewer comers. Those who make payments have to wait at 7Elevan for days. Previously, we could pay anytime, so employers and employees were convenient. My friend had to go to the CI office in Samut Prakan. He was convenient on the way as there was no inspection. But he has been waiting for one month to make payment,” said a Myanmar migrant.
Therefore, the workers want to restore the previous system of allowing payments at any time.
“We want the previous system back. Now, the workers are so much affected. Say, although one is near Samut Prakan, he can’t pay here and has to go to another place, so it is not convenient. Employers and employees should be allowed to make CI books freely,” he added.
Five CI stations are located in Samut Khun, Samut Prakan, Chonburi, Patong Division, and Surat Division, and three mobile unit camps are stationed in Chiang Mai, Nakhon Sawan Mobile, and Songkhla from 23 February to 31 October.
The Myanmar Embassy and Labour Attached Office (Bangkok) have advised the workers in a statement in February to go in person for the service and not to carry it out with brokers, which may cost more. — MT/ZN/Ed
