Myanmar government deadline for migrant passports

Mizzima reports on the Myanmar government's plans to extend the deadline for migrant passports:
Burma will extend the issuance of temporary passports for registered migrants in Thailand by the end of this year, according to Burmese local media. Since 2009, provisional passports have been issued to about 700,000 out of 2 million Burmese migrant workers in Thailand. An estimated remaining 500,000 are undocumented, said 7-Day News. The passports are part of the process to allow Burmese migrant workers to work and travel legally in Thailand.
