Myanmar's population has long used migration as a means of escape, a secure sanctuary and a means of subsistence. The emigrants not only help themselves, but also try to transfer enough funds to enable their homes and municipalities to administer. More than two million Myanmarans have emigrated abroad, according to Myanmar's last census of 2014.
70.2% of all immigrants were in Thailand, and a smaller number worked in Malaysia, China and Singapore. An increasing number of Myanmar immigrant labourers are trying to move through formal migration routes, either through licensed foreign labour offices or, in the case of the Republic of Korea, through a national agreement.
But the overwhelming bulk of Myanmar immigrants remain irregular due to the cost, timing and shortage of guarantees for better living standards. The secondment of a member of the host Family is not an alternative for many of them. This creates a dependence on estate agents and an urgent need for employment, exposing immigrants to blackmail and plunder.
It is only if it is a question of choosing that immigrants can choose the most secure recruiting method and the workplaces and travel destination that offers genuine occupational safety. There are also new models of domestic migration in reaction to new trends in the state. Industrial development, which includes processing and building, is attracting young workers from the countryside to the cities.
Significant movements from the countryside to the countryside also exist, especially for farming and mines. Migrant workers who are far from home and often experience a different cultural and linguistic environment can be susceptible to migration and job abuse. This increases the risk for in-house immigrants if they do not have full nationality documentation and if they have to cover the migration broker fees.
The risk of being in a situation of compulsory labor increases in areas of work with low occupational safety, especially in the areas of household work, fisheries, quarrying and building.
