Thailand is a Southeast Asian country. It’s known for tropical beaches, opulent royal palaces, ancient ruins and ornate temples displaying figures of Buddha. In Bangkok, the capital, an ultramodern cityscape rises next to quiet canalside communities and the iconic temples of Wat Arun, Wat Pho and the Emerald Buddha Temple (Wat Phra Kaew).
A: In order to work in Thailand, there are 2 important elements:
(1) Non-Immigrant-B Visa and (2) Work Permit
First of all, you need to have a prospective employer in Thailand.
Then you may apply for a Non-Immigrant Visa category ?B? (business) at the this Embassy, submitting required documents and recommendation letter from your employer along with your company?s business certifications as suggested in the website (www.mfa.go.th).
Once you have obtained such visa, you can enter the Kingdom and therefore apply for a Work Permit from the Department of Employment, Ministry of Labour.
In order to expedite visa issuance, your employer may, on your behalf, apply for the Work Permit in advance (with the form called Tor Thor 3). The Department of Employment will then issue a pre-approved certificate to be used in your visa application. In such case, please make sure to obtain the Work Permit (Tor Thor 2) once you arrive in Thailand.
Thailand visa processing time
Some promise to have it processed within 2 working days, while others may take longer. However, you should expect to wait for about 5 -10 working days for your Thai visa to be processed, starting from the time that the embassy/consulate receives your complete application.
Provide your first name, middle name and family name. Don’t forget to fill the former name if you have one (e.g. maiden name). For the nationality, write the name of the country which passport you are using. If you have changed your nationality, provide information about your nationality at birth too.
