The National Verification (NV) offices in Chiang Mai and Myawaddy announced
on December 18—International Migrants Day—that they will extend their
deadline for migrants to register until the end of the year; however other NV
centers—including those in Mahachai and Ranong—did not, leaving hundreds
of thousands of undocumented migrants from Burma, Cambodia
and Laos facing arrest and deportation.
