Thai company, Thai work permit, operating licenses, and business visa.

Contrary to what many people believe Thailand has many rules and regulations. These laws are particularly upheld regarding Thai visas and work permits. Flout these regulations at your peril. Adhere to them and you can enjoy a long and prosperous stay in wonderful Thailand. This is especially true of the all-important visa. When you become a Thailand ex-pat, this is arguably your most important document.

At our sister company Koh Phangan Visa Company we offer full services for all types of Thailand visas, company formations, and alterations, and also work permit and operating licences.

Thai business visa process

A Thai business or a job offer is needed before a long term non immigrant business visa (called a non B for short) can be obtained. Don’t worry too much as this business making the employment offer can be your own company. Businesses such as bars, restaurants, hotels, etc will also require some licensing documentation before they can operate in Thailand. We are here to help and advise you on the best working practices here in Koh Phangan.

You could say that the Thai business visa process is a bit of a ‘chicken and egg’ situation. That’s to say, in order to make a 1-year business visa the applicant must have a valid work permit for that matching duration. Easy! I hear you saying, but not so fast… To make a work permit, for any duration, you must first have a valid Thai business visa, confusing right? Add to this the fact that you should actually be outside of Thailand in order to apply for the work permit and it becomes even more of a bureaucratic headache.

Well, this is where Phangan Business and Visa come in, we have the knowledge, experience and contacts to make all of this be relatively easy for you.

Over the years we have cultivated very good working relationships in the local government departments which deal with various actions. We are very happy to say that we have good contacts at the Land Department, Business Development Department, Ministry of Labour, local planning departments, among others.

Phangan Business and Visa can help you get set up and get from A to B-usiness as quickly and painlessly as possible, not to mention making your visa ‘airtight’.
