  1. Work permit holders that work in businesses and pay Social Fund contributions are covered by the Thai Social Fund system, the same as Thai citizens. I would imagine that work permit holders in this category world be the last to be required to have insurance as the Thai government already covers them. I'm not entirely sure if teachers with work permits are covered in the same way however.
  2. Off topic posts have been removed. This topic is not about Brexit.
  3. A good start might be Zudrangma Records on Sukhumvit Soi 51. I believe they are something to do with Studio Lam and possibly W T F Cafe.
  4. It depends on where in Thailand. You will pay less upcountry and more in Bangkok. For 25k you can get people with good to really good English skills. The problem isn't finding the employees, it's keeping them.
  5. Civil and Commercial Code Section 1452: A marriage cannot take place if the man or woman is already the spouse of another person. That's quite definitive.
  6. A number of posts where members were bickering have been removed.
  7. Any Thai adult who is of sound mind. Also, technically, any non-Thai person who has the correct work permit. That being said, I would be surprised if any work permits for this category of work exist.
  8. The interesting thing is the application for a work permit or a work permit extension is yours alone. You sign as the applicant. If your employer (or an agent) wants to represent you or submit an application on your behalf then they need an authority letter signed by you. If you are the applicant then in my opinion the work permit is more yours then your employers. As stated, you can cancel on your own behalf - I've done it myself previously in Bangkok.
  9. ^^^^ There's another like for you on post 6.
  10. I frequently have business meetings in Bangkok. I usually wear shoes, suit trousers and a long sleeved shirt. No tie and no jacket. That's for a formal meeting. For less formal meetings you can get away with a short sleeved shirt and jeans. Site meetings can be jeans and a smart polo neck neck t shirt. The foreign people I see wearing jackets and ties tend to look very uncomfortable. They also look like it's their first time doing business. Jackets and ties are for board meetings, formal company photographs, etc
  11. As above, change Baht to AUD in Thailand. You will feel sore if you do it the other way round. In Bangkok, Vasu and Super Rich exchanges tend to give the best rates. Do not forget to take your passport when exchanging cash.
