How do Nepali migrants migrate?
The MIDEQ Malaysia team continues to speak to Nepali migrants in Malaysia and families of migrants in Nepal to discover how Nepali migrants travel to Malaysia. The journey is fraught, as agents who facilitate migrant worker movement are sometimes not forthcoming about who they will be working for and how hard the work will really be. Some dishonest agents even ask for more money than the agency requires during the migration process. As many Nepali migrants who find work abroad are inexperienced at travel, they are susceptible to being taken advantage of by unscrupulous agents.
