About 200,000 illegal Burmese migrant workers are among some 400,000 illegal foreign workers who are due to be deported back to their respected countries in December this year, according to a report by the Bangkok Post, a Thailand-based newspaper.

Speaking with The Irrawaddy on Tuesday, Andy Hall, a migration expert at Mahidol University in Bangkok, said that the 200,000 Burmese nationals are those who haven’t completed the national verification process.
