Repatriated Myanmar migrant workers are seen on 21 November.

It is reported that 210 Myanmar nationals who were arrested in Thailand for various reasons were repatriated to Kawthoung on 21 November.
The 210 repatriated workers — 170 males and 40 females — were transferred by the head of the Immigration Department and officials from Ranong, Thailand, to Kawthoung for the first time this month. Myanmar health officials and Red Cross members conducted COVID-19 tests with RDT (Test kit) and other necessary tests on returnees. The Migrant Resource Centres-MRC provided personal goods to Myanmar nationals as well.
The returnees (men and women) have to stay separately under surveillance for three days at three quarantine centres in Kawthoung Township. Then, they will be sent to their homes if they are not infected with the COVID-19 virus. The officer in charge of the Ranong Labour Office urged Myanmar nationals to enter Thailand officially next time since the registration programme is already in place in Myanmar.
