The situation of the Rohingya refugees in other countries varies.
In Thailand, about 10,000 are scattered around the country and most of them have been living there for 20-30 years. However, some victims of the 2015 Rohingya boat people that ended up in traffickers’ camps in southern Thailand are now in administrative detention and await for re-settlement in third countries.
The few thousand Rohingya stranded in Indonesia are in total limbo and waiting for many years before being re-settled to other countries. Most of them were caught up trying to reach Australia and turned back to Indonesia. They are strictly forbidden to work in Indonesia being completely dependent on UNHCR handouts to survive. Most of them have been in this situation for 5-7 years.
