A government spokeswoman yesterday said that the Thai cabinet had agreed to proposals by the Labour Department to contract out much of the application for work permits for migrant workers to the private sector. 

 

Ratchada Thanadirek was at pains to point out that the final decision will rest with the Labour Department as to who gets a work permit. 

 

But utilising private firms in everything from the application stage to the final issuing of a work permit will mean a faster and more convenient service for potential workers. 

 

An upgraded electronic system with data sharing potential means that applicants will have a 24 hour service and not be restricted to government hours. 

 

There are expected to be 45 centers nationwide offering the new service that will be under contracts of 10 years.

Isn't this what the agents are for, or do they only apply to farang visas?

No the 4 asian countries surrounding Thailand supply workers who need visas and work permits.  Most use agents like my GF did this year and that includes the WP which is listed on the back of her pink ID card.
