Four Chinese nationals were arrested on Saturday trying to sneak across the border from Mae Sot district of Tak to Myanmar, an immigration police source said yesterday.

The four men were arrested by soldiers from the 4th Infantry Task Force Regiment patrolling along the Thai-Myanmar border. They were about to cross the border by boat from a village in tambon Mae Ku on the bank of the Moei River.

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. They agreed.

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.
