Where do YOU go for your work permit health check-up in Bangkok?


Recommended Posts

So, I am new to this and I am located in Bangkok.

 

Where is the best and most straightforward place for your work permit medical health check up? Also cost and time effective? Easy location?

 

Thank you

All out foreign staff use Blez Clinic right by BTS Asok.     https://blez-clinic.com/en/

And do the Bangkok requirements differ from the provinces?   1. Certificate signed by doc (original) 2. Lab slip results (original)

Sure.  Nothing has changed.  I did mine last month.

This year I was told it had to be a proper hospital, not the local clinic that I usually use. Colleagues had reported 1,300B+, for a simple blood test. I am not far from Thonburi 2 Hospital and I messaged them on FB and discussed a decent price of about 900-1,000B.

Went to immigration and met another colleague who told me he had used a local clinic and paid 300B (like I had for many years), and there was no problem with that.

Just look for a clinic in your neighborhood....Green Cross Sign and usually Green Sign that signifies clinic. Bring a sample form ....so they know what you need...the front staff likely speaks zero English. Doctor's almost always speak English well. Usually 300 to 500 baht.

But there needs to be a blood test, right?

Yes.  They do a finger-blood test for syphilis.  It takes 2 minutes.

 

Interesting

 

I have been getting jabbed in the arm for the past 10 years up north. 😞

I am surprised they don't scrutinize the lab-slip (at labor office) about the test.

 

Or in Bangkok do you just submit the health certificate (not the lab slip too)?

 

Up north, my old labor office would play the doctor trying to quiz the type of test and interpret the result, rather than just accepting the health certificate, lol

I've never had a syph test. I just get a signed med cert from the local clinic. About 200 baht for the last one. But my work permit goes back to 2007. I think the rules changed at one stage in the past to include the syphilis test.

When is the last time you renewed/extended WP using just the medical certificate?

Blez Clinic give you the doctor's certificate and the lab report for the syphilis blood test (500 baht).
