TM-87 rejected at Jomtien today

Recommended Posts

Try to figure out what else they accept others than a work permit. If they really requested only work permit from the foreigner, then I guess your second choice is to do a short rental (1 Month) for only the Non-O stamp 😉.

 

Maybe some other users here have a better option for you. Often the Immigration persons make up some own rules...

Rules state that lease must be 3 months or longer. “At least 3 months”

Thinking of going to TikToc agency today in Jomtien. I’m just worried that even an agency might fail here and I don’t want to risk 15-20k baht if I don’t know if it will work

I can pretty much guarantee he has no work permit—why the heck should he?

Because unless he’s using a third party to manage the letting he’s working and needs a work permit.

 

That said it’s wrong that immigration punish you.

 

If he appointed a letting agent that should get around the problem.

How would a person living outside the country get a work permit?

He is not breaking the latest definition of work. It is shown here.

Jomtien is the only immigration office that has come up with that nonsense requirement.

I agree it's nonsense. But where in the new rules does it exempt landlords (managing a property) from requiring a work permit?

If you are not allowed to sell goods or services from outside Thailand to people or organisations inside Thailand (does this also work in the opposite direction?) I wonder how many companies and individuals are in breech of Thai labour laws.

I believe a work permit should be required.

After all, rental property is in fact a business that is generating income.

Many foreigners renting out property long and short term. some with numerous properties ( a Chinese woman has 20 properties at The Base) making a bundle.

Not the same in the case mentioned in this topic. Apparently the owner is jus renting out his condo that is certainly not the same a owning several properties as a business.

I had exactly the same problem there a couple of years back.

The female immigration officer offered to do it for a 20k 'fee'

Ended up going through an agent and paying even more !!
