The authorities at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport have admitted that three Nigerians have been hunkering down in departures for two months.
Previously a Facebook post suggested there was one.
The three men arrived on two flights in March but while they were in transit their destination countries closed their borders and seeing as they had no Thai visas they were left stranded at the airport.
Two arrived on Emirates on March 21st and were headed for Laos on Lao Airways.
The other arrived on Ethihad on March 24th and was due to fly to Myanmar.
Thai media reported that Thailand’s region two immigration has been working with the Nigerian embassy and the airlines to provide for the men.
If looks as though their ordeal may come to an end in June 4th when they could travel back to the UAE.
