A work permit allows a non-Thai citizen to work in Thailand as a skilled professional. The work permit is required in order to be able to work legally. We will ensure you obtain your non-immigrant visa, and then your work permit. 


Before you can apply or be issued with a work permit you must have a non-immigrant visa first. This is required to apply for a Thai work permit. Ideally, it should be acquired prior to your arrival in Thailand. We can assist you in obtaining it in your home country or in country close to Thailand. In addition, we can help you convert a tourist visa to a non-immigrant visa. Once you have a non-immigrant visa, we will liaise with the Ministry of Labor to you begin to process the work permit. 


Something that can be an overwhelming and confusing process will be handled by our team of experts, so you can rest assured that your Visa and Work Permit will be completed within the correct time frame and in the correct way.
