Migrant workers are a person or group of people who move from their country to another country to get a decent living. However, in reality, due to the lack of strict regulations, there are still unskilled migrant workers from Indonesia who work in other countries, especially in Southeast Asia. The low quality of unskilled workers causes them to be the target of their employers' anger and often become victims of human rights violations. With the normative research method, this study concludes that Indonesia already has rules regarding the limits on sending skilled workers from Indonesia. Its effective implementation is needed, especially the imposition of sanctions to unscrupulous labor service providers who commit illegal acts to pass them so they can work abroad. In addition, ASEAN member countries can develop a regulatory framework to provide legal protection to unskilled workers in their regions.
