Phuket migrant workers granted three-month deportation reprieve

Published

 on 

PHUKET: Cabinet has passed a resolution allowing migrant workers in Phuket and across the Kingdom an additional three months to complete the nationality verification process, Phuket Provincial Employment Office (PPEO) chief Yawapa Pibulpol told the Phuket Gazette today.

“According to Cabinet’s resolution, migrant workers’ deportation deadline has been extended until April 15,” Ms Yawapa said.

“What action we will take against those who have not started the process by April 15 will depend on Cabinet’s decision on the matter,” she added.

Ms Yawapa confirmed that the PPEO was still accepting work permit applications and would not conduct any raids or deport any migrant workers until further instructions came from Bangkok (story here).
