  1. Chainat and Leeds are spot on and just quoting what the law says.

    as a person who performs duties or mission for the benefit of education, culture, art, sports or other activities as may be prescribed by the Royal Decree

    That does not mean teachers, the words duties or mission are the key factor here. It is hard to say what it exactly means, but you must think in terms of participants for Olympic games etc. that can be exempt by Royal Decree. And only with a Royal Decree are they exempt.

    They have an opinion based on their interpretation of the meaning behind the words used in sub-paragraph 6.

    Do they have a ruling or other way of substantiating their opinion ?.If not.Once again only an opinion and not a fact.

    The last part of the sentence states that other exclusions can be added to this sub-paragraph by means of a Royal Decree.The first part of the sentence has already been enacted into law .


  2. substantiation

    Now this is a teacher. biggrin.png

    555.

    I think I've already explained the situation. There is no law that overrides the Act that states that those here for the benefit of education (which is obviously any teacher here) are exempt from needing a Work Permit. But the Thai officials and ministries don't know/care/follow it, and demand them anyway. smile.png

    Thanks Almera.Taking issue with the Thai officials and the Ministries about this is a fight for another day.But to enter the fray you had better be equiped with the right weapons thus my quest for information.


  3. Almera, not everything is written into law with its details of precedent as clearly as everyone would like. But I know I'm correct in my description. You have every right to disagree, but you will be wrong. Your mileage may vary.

    Proof in writing is all that I asking for.Is anyone else able to supply same or point me in the right direction?

    Having an opinion is the right of everyone but if you do not have verifyable information to substantiate your opinion then your opinion is open to be challanged.

    I am not into this for the argument but am seeking the de facto rule as it stands now backed by the substantiation thereof.

  4. Section 4 (Sub-paragraph 6 ) stipulates that an Alien (Non-Thai

    National ) engaged in the Education field is exempt from the requirement

    of having to get a Work Permit to work legally in Thailand.

    Anyone know if this law has been amended in any way since then or are there other laws that override this Executive decision ?

    Any information would be appreciated

    Not applicable to the occupation of teacher in formal, in-formal or non-formal educational institutions in Thailand.

    If this law is not applicable to the occupation of teacher which Act of Parliament or which Royal Decree or which Amendment has been passed into law to exclude teachers from this exemption?

    Sorry if I appear stupid but I cannot find any reference to the exclusion of those employed as teachers in Thailand in The act.
