More than 500 Chinese citizens are stuck in Tachileik, the Chiang Rai Times reported.
The stranded Chinese people reportedly entered Tachileik without an entry permit.
They have also been refused re-entry to Thailand by the Thai authorities. Tachileik’s General Administration Department (GAD) officer Chan Myae Saw, said that they remain in limbo in Tachileik.
He added that the stranded Chinese have opted to return directly to China from Myanmar. However, must report to the Chinese embassy first.
