The Thai Cabinet has decided to allow migrant workers from Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar to work in Thailand until July 31, 2020, to help reduce the potential spread of the coronavirus disease 2019, and to maintain a workforce as the situation gradually improves.
Previously, the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Labour had allowed them to stay and work in the kingdom until May 31 this year.
The Government Spokeswoman, Prof. Dr. Narumon Pinyosinwat, was quoted by the National News Bureau of Thailand as saying on June 3 that with disease-control measures still in force, the Ministry of Labour called a meeting of various units. They resolved that the migrant workers from the three neighbouring countries can stay and work in Thailand between June 1 and July 31.
