China‘s Yunnan and Myanmar’s Shan State border (data map)

In Yunnan, China’s southwest border province, the number of Chinese immigrants from northern Myanmar has seen a surge in recent days. According to reports, most of them are illegal Chinese immigrants engaged in telecommunications fraud or gambling in northern Myanmar, hoping to “surrender” to their country so as not to be punished by the authorities.

However, with the rapid deterioration of Myanmar’s new crown epidemic since June, many Chinese ports bordering northern Myanmar have restricted the number of daily arrivals, which makes many people have to wait at the border for several weeks.

The reason for the sudden emergence of the “returning army” is that since February this year, many places in China have successively issued policies to persuade the return of Chinese who engage in illegal activities in northern Myanmar. Penalties for those who refuse to follow the persuasion include cancellation of household registration.

In the dense jungles of the northern Shan State of Myanmar, there are many regimes and ethnic minority local armed forces that are not controlled by Naypyidaw. Chinese official media have stated that this place has become the main shelter for Chinese telecom fraud gangs, with more than 100,000 “employees”.
