As many as 70% migrant workers bank on middlemen for completing migration related activities while 50% overseas jobseekers pay double the usual cost as passport fees, says an NGO report.

They also have to wait for long period of time for obtaining passports despite clearing the payment, the report adds.

A Chittagong-based non-governmental organisation Young Power in Social Action (YPSA) unveiled the report in a press briefing in Chittagong on Sunday.

YPSA prepared the report conducting a baseline survey among 270 migrant workers hailing from Rangunia upazila of the district.
