                                          How can I get work permit in Thailand?

Before obtaining a work permit in Thailand, the company that hires you must apply for a non-immigrant visa for you. If you are planning to leave the country, it is recommended to apply for a non-immigrant visa with him at least 30 days before leaving

In order to obtain a non-immigrant visa, the Consulate or the Officer will have to request copies of the registration documents and the financial statement of the company.
You, as a future employee, must provide the following documents and meet the appropriate requirements:
– you must present the copies of each page in the passport and sign them
– apply for a non-immigrant visa
– departure card and degree together with a copy of it signed by you
– signed transcript and copy
– all certificates and licenses together with their copies signed by you
– the CV in which you must describe the positions occupied in the workplace, your duties, your performance, the duration but also the workplace
– 3 photos taken in the last 6 months
– if so, the marriage certificate together with the photos and their copies signed by you. You must also present the identity card of the wife, the registration of the home and the birth certificate of the children
It is possible that the Thai government will require these documents to be certified by the Embassy of your country and you will have to translate all the documents from your language into Thai.
The employer must comply with the following requirements:
– must demonstrate that the organization for which the employee is to work has been correctly and properly registered as a legal person, and it must also specify the name of the managing director, the share capital and its objections.
– it must also present the list of shareholders, and this list must be certified by the Commercial Registration Department
– if necessary, it must present the factory license issued by the Factory Department and the Ministry of Industry
– VAT certificate
– withholding tax
– the payment of social insurance payments

Note that all government officials want all documents to have the company seal on each page along with the appropriate and authorized signatures of the general manager.
The work permit is granted based on several aspects, and one of them is the job description because through this job it can be shown that the future employee has all the necessary and competent qualities to occupy this job.
Because Thai citizens protect the availability of jobs for their citizens, it is possible that not all work permits will be approved. In connection with the job description, the company has the right to choose to obtain assistance from highly qualified lawyers, lawyers belonging to J&E Concierge Pattaya, in order to increase the chances of obtaining a work permit for the desired employee.

Once your work permit has been issued, you will need to go to the Labor Department to obtain its approval.
You must present yourself to the Ministry of Labor together with your passport and you must sign the work permit in the presence of the personnel from here. When you receive your work permit, the Labor Department will put a stamp behind the passport.
When you are granted a work permit you will only have to work with the respective company. If you will be assigned to another location but you belong to the same company, it must apply for another work permit to approve the new location. The same rules apply if a natural person works with another company.
These formalities must be completed because the work permit is issued to the employee for a specific company that is specified but also for its location. If you have been fired or have applied for resignation, you must surrender the work permit to the Ministry of Labor within 10 days after dismissal or resignation
These are the most important requirements and rules that you must follow when you want to obtain a work permit in Thailand.

    Can you now register a company in a private house (I’m thinking upcountry, but could be anywhere), apply for the work permit there and pay VAT, Social Security for 4 Thai staff, income tax etc in that region, then just do what you want work wise down South without the need to register everywhere you work as a branch?.

      Of course all this depends on the relevant Thai authorities firstly being aware the Royal Decree even exists and secondly deciding to abide by the rules set out in the decree.

      Any foreigner who has a work permit in Thailand, may now work anywhere, for anyone, including themselves, under any conditions, and do any type of work that is not excluded by the official list.

      My reading of the Royal Decree means that as a non-Thai I am allowed to “come to Thailand on a short-term periodic.
