Bangkok (VNA) - Vietnamese migrant workers in Thailand are allowed to register for work permits in the country, according to an instruction that the Government of Thailand sent to its Ministry of Labour on January 18.


It instructed the Ministry of Labour to complete registration for work permits for guest workers from Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar by June 30, 2018. These three nations have signed labour exchange agreements with Thailand.

It also said Vietnamese workers are allowed to register for work permits in the country like those from the three nations, however, no specific instructions were mentioned.

According to the ministry, Vietnamese workers have permits to work in fishing and construction. There are no official agreements on other fields. Therefore, the country will only push granting permits for Vietnamese workers in these two fields. - VNA
