With regard to the visa and work permits, the promoted company can support visa and work permits with no need to fulfill the Immigration and Labour department requirements. Normally, if a company is going to support a work permit application, the company is required to have at least 2 million baht registered capital along with 4 Thai employees named in Social Security Fund to support each work permit application. However, if the company is promoted by the BOI, it is exempted from such requirements. The promoted company can bring expat to Thailand for the reasons as follows:
- For the purpose of studying investment opportunities or other actions that will provide any advantages to Thailand
- For bringing foreign skill workers, experts or any technicians to work in the promoted company
Please bear in mind that before entering to Thailand, the applicant should obtain 90 days non-immigrant B visa from any Royal Thai Embassy or Thai consulate outside the Kingdom of Thailand. When the applicant arrives in Thailand, the applicant should contact the One Stop Service Center as soon as possible for the Visa and work permit approval in order to stay in Thailand legally.
