The four, whose identities were not disclosed, were taken to Mae Sot immigration office where they were found to have overstayed their visas. The immigration police suggested they go to the immigration office in Bangkok to get their visas extended and return to China. After the invocation of the emergency decree, Thai authorities have stepped up measures to prevent people illegally crossing the border between Tak's Mae Sot and Myawaddy township of Myanmar.
