The Thai Embassy to Yangon announced that it would blacklist and permanently ban visa applicants who use false certification.
Despite of such announcement, some Myanmar brokers are still processing visa applications to the embassy with false documents, according to an official at Thai embassy.
Myanmar people are interested in travelling to Thailand, rather than domestic tour, due to cheaper package in recent years.
The embassy suggested visa applicants should apply the visa by themselves since the application via brokers was expensive due to extra charge and too risky.
The Embassy will ban the applicants permanently if any visa applicants used false statements to apply visa. The embassy will also take legal action against the brokers.
The embassy issues some 300-400 entry visa on daily basis.
