Thai Work Visa
What is it?
A Thai Work Visa is just that. It allows a person to work in Thailand either for their own business or for a Thai Business. It can be difficult to get a work visa in Thailand. We help to make it as easy as possible and guide our clients with everything they need.
A Thai work permit allows a foreigner to work and operate a business in Thailand legally. Working in the Kingdom of Thailand without a work visa is illegal and will result in a punishment of either a fine or imprisonment. Neither are something that you want. Thats why it is always recommended that you do your research and get exactly what you need.
How Do I Get A Thai Work Visa?
To get a thai work visa first you must apply for a non immigrant visa. What is a non immigrant visa? It is a type of visa that states you are coming to Thailand on a temporary basis, it allows the applicant to stay for 90 days. We can help convert your Thai Tourist Visa into a Non Immigrant Visa without you needing to leave the Kingdom (pretty great right).
Only after you have your Non Immigrant Visa can you then apply for a Thai Work Visa. This is where it gets hard.
Documents that you need to provide:
- Your Passport – a copy of each page. Each copy should be signed by you.
- Your Non-Immigrant Visa
- Departure Card TM.6
- Your Education Degree (a signed copy) *
- Transcript (a signed copy) *
- Certificates or licenses held by applicant (signed copy) *
- CV or Resume – providing a nicely written cv that details previous positions, duties, length and employment location. If you need to hire a cv writer we can also do that for you here.
- Photos, three (3) which are 5 x 6 cm in size (not passport photos) with full face and taken wearing business attire (a suit and tie, or just a shirt is usually all you need). Make sure that the photos are pretty recent. Dated within 6 months before application of your Work permit.
- Your Marriage Certificate (if you are married to Thai National). Including the original and signed photocopies. Also include your wife’s Thai ID card, birth certificates of children, and household registration.
*Thai government officials may require that these documents have to be certified by your home countries embassy. This can be difficult if your embassy is far from where you live or maybe there isn’t one in the Kingdom. All documents will need to be brought there and certified as true and original. It is possible that you may be required to have some of these documents translated into thai, but this is not always the case.
Documents that your employer will need to provide are:
- A Commercial Registration Department Certificate that shows that the business/organization hasbeen fully registered. Including who the managing director is, the business objective and registered capital. *
- List of Shareholders certified by the Commercial Registration Department. (if the company has shareholders) *
- A Factory License (if required) issued by Factory Department, Ministry of Industry. *
- VAT Certificate – Phor Phor 20 *
- VAT filing – Phor Phor 30
- Withholding Tax – Phor Ngor Dor 1
- Social Security Payment filing
*For thai government officials to accept any documents the companies seal must be stamped on every page including the Managing director or directors real signature next to the seal. Also anything marked with an * above may also be required within the past 90 days application of your thai work permit.
Keeping track of all this information can be difficult and very tedious. Here at Tarrant Legal we will keep guide you in the right direction and make sure everything is done the right way.
