According to the law, foreigners need work permit to work in Thailand. Work permit is an official document that gives foreigners permission to work in Thailand, with a requirement that it must be a job requiring high skills. Work permit specifies the occupation, job position with description, and the name of the company employing the foreigner. Job descriptions in foreigner’s work permit mush match with the actual job he/she is working in Thailand.
Foreigners who have come to Thailand, regardless of the visa types, are not allowed to work in Thailand until they get their work permits. Those who aim to work in Thailand must have their visas stamped with the right sign and use it to request for work permit at the Ministry of Labor.
To ensure that foreigners will obtain the work permits, they must have non–immigrant visa only before coming to Thailand. With non-immigrant visa, foreigners can proceed to request for work permit at the Ministry of Labor, and the procedure takes around 7 working days to complete.
In general, the chance to obtain work permits also depends on the registered capital of the hiring company.
Regarding the stated requirements, a juristic person can request up to 10 work permits only. However, the company with the Board of Investment of Thailand (BOI) endorsement is exempt from the rule.
