Thailand warns migrant workers to renew work permits or face deportation

The Star, Thailand, 10 October 2020 - BANGKOK, Oct. 9 (Xinhua): Thailand's Ministry of Labour has issued an announcement in multiple languages advising Laos, Myanmar and Cambodian migrant workers to quickly have their work permits renewed before the Oct 31 deadline, or face stiff punishment and be immediately deported back to their countries.

Labour Minister Suchart Chomklin said he has been very lenient on migrant workers due to concerns of rising Covid-19 (coronavirus) cases in their countries, adding that Thailand is experiencing a shortage of migrant workers.

"Please come and apply for the work permit renewals early as there are lots of paperwork to do," the minister said, "if migrant workers don't have the right papers, then they will face huge penalty and an immediate deportation."

According to the Ministry of Labour's September data, 61,193 migrant workers had already applied to renew work permits.
