In Nay Pyi Taw, the capital of Myanmar, on last weekends, Malaysian and Myanmar governments have agreed to work together in documenting Myanmar nationals living illegally in Malaysia so that they can either return home or be employed.
One-stop centre would be opened next month within a department of the interior ministry to process qualified Myanmar nationals to obtain work permits.
There is a large number of Myanmar nationals who want to go home, so under the new working arrangement, the one-stop centre would also assist those who want to return to their country with their documentation.
The co-operation between the two governments would solve the problem of Myanmar illegals being held at immigration depots for long periods.
According to offical figures, there are about 144,000 Myanmar nationals working either legally and illegally, and another 120,000 people are United Nations High Commissioners for Refugees card holders.
