June 15, deadline for Cambodian workers’ regulation in Thailand

Bangkok. June 15 is the last day for Cambodian workers in Thailand to regularize their permits before the emigration office. According to the Foundation for the Development and Human Rights in Bangkok, authorities are doing some deportations in order to push illegal workers to expedite procedures. Any Cambodian who would be working in Thailand after June 15 without the due permits, will be arrested and deported, announced the Thai department of employment. The total cost of the procedure is 125 US dollars, an amount that some human rights organizations see as too high for the pocket of poor migrants, but the Thai government insists that it is the only way to give to them social protection.
