Of the 48 migrants, 24 were found to be overstaying their visa, three had illegally entered the country and the remaining 21 were “accompanying persons” according to the police.

Eight carried cards indicating they had registered to apply for refugee status with the United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR).

Police believe the eight holders of UNHCR cards were not successful in obtaining refugee status.

Thailand’s Immigration Police Bureau will now contact the Social Development and Human Security Ministry as well as refugee-advocate organisations to help screen the 48 Pakistanis, check for signs of human trafficking and ensure they are placed in a safe environment.
