Three nationality verification centres for Cambodian workers are now open in Thailand.
Employment Department director-general Varanon Peetiwan said on Wednesday that one of the centres was located in Imperial World Lat Phrao in Bangkok, another in Mayong OTOP in Rayong province, and the third in Fuk Thian Market in Songkhla.
He advised Cambodian workers, especially those whose work permits expire on November 1, to contact one of these centres quickly.
Each Cambodian worker will have to pay Bt4,400 at the Rayong and Songkhla centres: Bt2,350 for travel documents, Bt500 for a visa, Bt500 for health insurance, and Bt550 for a work permit. At the Bangkok centres, they only have to pay for travel documents with other fees to be paid to relevant officials in the province where they work.
“If you need more information, call the hotline on 1694,” Varanon said.
According to him, more than 200,000 Cambodians in Thailand will need to contact the centres to process their work permits.
