Myanmar sends back extradited Chinese citizens after their re-entry

MANDALAY—Myanmar authorities have returned six Chinese citizens who were found to have re-entered the country via Mandalay International Airport after being extradited to China for violating visa rules, according to a government official.

The director of Mandalay Region’s Immigration and National Registration Department said the Chinese citizens in question were blacklisted for violating visa rules and then extradited. They entered the country again holding new passports, he said.

“These were cases in which some people re-entered the country with new passports pretending not to know about being blacklisted. After inspection, we sent them back from the airport. They were from Kyaukse and Myitha towns in Mandalay region, where they used to engage in agriculture,” said department director Thaung Zaw.

According to the department, five other Chinese citizens were extradited last month after completing their prison terms.

Monthly, about 500 Chinese citizens arrive in Mandalay region on business visas. They usually work in oil and gas, mining and agriculture. With business visas, they can stay in Myanmar for up to 70 days.
