Immigration Police today, June 11th, announced the arrest of 14 foreign nationals for reportedly overstaying in Thailand in Northeastern provinces, with the longest overstay of more than 7 years!
The capture was conducted as part of a proactive approach to prevent the spread of Covid-19 upon migrant workers and foreign nationals in the areas, Immigration Chief Sompong Chingduang stated. Officials had been actively asking for passports and identification of foreigners in the area to ensure nobody had crossed borders illegally, potentially skirting Covid-19 quarantine rules, which led to the overstay discoveries.
Among the arrests, one out of two Cameroon nationals, whose name was only revealed as Njibili, was caught in Khon Kaen province and was reported with the longest overstay for a total of 2,779 days or about 7.5 years.
Eight of them were reportedly Indian nationals who were all captured in Northeastern provinces, including Surin, Roi Et, Nakhon Ratchasima, and Yosothon. The other nationals include Cambodia, Myanmar, and Vietnam.
All of them were being taken to the Immigration Bureau for legal proceedings and eventual deportation and blacklisting.
