Thailand’s CCSA agrees how to safely bring in migrant workers, including Cambodians

Khmer Times, Thailand, 14 November 2021 - The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) has approved a process to bring migrant workers into the country to solve the ongoing labour shortage, complete with rules to ensure they are free of infectious diseases.

Dr Taweesilp Visanuyothin, spokesman for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, said the Labour Ministry has proposed eight steps to ensure people from other countries can be safely hired without importing any fresh cases of Covid-19, and the CCSA has given its official consent. The new rules are due to take effect next month.

The news should come as a relief to business owners as many industries are facing labour shortages as a result of Covid lockdowns being lifted amid a crackdown on illegal workers.

Dr Taweesilp said employers must deliver a form to employment offices if they hope to hire migrant workers from overseas and file an application with the relevant authorities.

Other countries must compile a list of prospective workers and send this to Thailand’s Labour Ministry and employers before employers can be issued work permits.

The ministry will also require evidence that the workers have been vaccinated and have health insurance, in order for them to be registered with the social security system.
