Those who are trying are hopeless because the permission to work abroad is closed : Myanmar

Since the military council has temporarily suspended the permission of Myanmar nationals to work abroad starting May 1st, those who are trying to borrow money at high interest to go abroad. People who are trying to sell all their mortgages are facing difficulties and hopelessness, said stakeholders.

This closure does not include those who have received permission to go abroad from the Ministry of Labor until the end of April.

However, starting May 1st, the Military Council's permanent secretary of the Ministry of Labor, U Nyunt Win, confirmed to RFA that the men who try to go abroad will be temporarily suspended.

"There will be a temporary suspension of sending men as migrant workers. Not all of the MOU posted until the end of April is within the limits. From May 1st, among those who submitted a demand (job invitation letter), male and female applicants will be temporarily suspended, and the female will continue to be sent."

According to him, all men who submitted to the Ministry of Labor before May and are awaiting approval and who will try to leave after May 1 are covered by this limit.

Every time I bend, Born into a farming family in Minbu, 27-year-old Ko Thein Ngay is trying to leave Japan after selling her mother and older sister's jewelry.

"Now my dreams are shattered and I don't know what to do."

The cost of passport postage and overseas employment agency costs are currently around 40,000,000, so my mother and older sister sold all the gold and silver they had. Ko Thein Nguy said that because it was not enough, he had to borrow from others at a high interest rate.

Ko Thein Nguy said that now his dreams have been dashed and he doesn't know how to do it.

“We sold what we had and made it to leave Japan. The politics here are also bad. There is no job. Now that it's closed, everyone is in trouble. Posting a passport. Agents were deposited only thirty hundred thousand. The whole book cost about forty. Now that foreign calls are closed, it's time. I don't know when it will reopen. I'm pretty scared already. I don't know how to pay off the borrowed money."

Ma Su Su, who has been working in a garment factory in Yangon for more than ten years, cannot go to Japan because it is more expensive. So he is trying to work with his brother in neighboring Thailand, where he can get to with little money.

Ma Su Suu told RFA that now the whole family is having a headache due to the interest taken.

"From passport to work abroad, We will be in more trouble when people who are taking money with interest, including paying agencies, shut down like this. I chose to go to Thailand because I thought it would be more convenient for me to work. The expenses taken to go out are taken with interest. Now how are you going to repay that money? We are faced with a situation that only gets worse. Now the whole family is struggling to pay the interest."

This issue concerns Thailand, where most Myanmar nationals often go to work. Japan U Kyaw Tin Kyaw, vice president of the Federation of Myanmar Overseas Employment Service Providers (2), said that the ban is mainly aimed at restricting new job calls from Singapore and Middle Eastern countries after May 2.

U Kyaw Tin Kyaw commented that because of this order of the military council, not only those who are trying to go abroad, but also the employment agencies that provide services to them may face difficulties.

"If you have collected the money in advance and have not done anything, you don't have to connect the hotel agency. The brokers who do not need to be connected to this agency are at the table. No. (1) workers will be affected. The agencies that would send the boys will no longer be able to send them, so the agencies will also be affected."

After connecting with the government from Myanmar, Those who want to go to work officially after connecting with large foreign companies can get a passport designated as Passport For Job (PJ). Those who want to go just for a visit should go with a Passport For Visit (PV).

Now, the restriction of the Ministry of Labor and Military Council is aimed mainly at banning men who will go abroad with PJ type passports.

U Than Soe Naing, a political analyst, believes that no matter what type of passport is banned, the military council's purpose in banning it is mainly targeting men because they need people for military service training.

"I believe that the closure of the permission to go abroad means that there are not enough numbers for the second round of military training, so this order was issued. It means that adult men are no longer allowed to go abroad. We consider that what we did is because we are in a difficult situation when implementing the military service law."

Article (13) of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that everyone has the right to freedom of movement within the borders of their own country. In addition, from the country of residence or The right to leave freely from any other country; It is stated that there is a right to return.

However, in Myanmar, where power has been seized, not only the freedom of movement within the country, but also the right to travel abroad are restricted.

  1. Myanmar's military council's ban on men working abroad strains families financially, limiting freedom and potentially boosting military conscription efforts.
