Work Permit

Recommended Posts

i am currently applying for teaching jobs with different schools in thailand.

SOme schools are saying that you dont need a work permit to teach at their school, only a non immi b visa.

Im a bit confused.

Can anyone give me a straight answer on this one?

You only need a Work Permit if you want to be legal. :o

Please see: http://www.mfa.go.th/web/2482.php?id=2649

Some of us find comfort in working legally here while others are willing to take the risk and work illegally without a Work Permit.

Each of us has to make his or her own decision in this respect.

I'm comfortable with mine and find it a lot easier to do things legally than doing things illegally and spending my time worrying about how long I can get away with doing it illegally.

If a school insists you can work legally in Thailand absent a Work Permit, ask them to get a document for your use from Thai Immigration stating the same. :D

Any school that tells you that I would consider dodgy and not even consider them, they are putting you in jeopardy . It is illegal to do any work, including teaching, without a work permit.

^What he said. If the schools tell you this, they are lying. If they will lie to you about something this important, consider what else they may lie to you about. Run away.

Technically, it's not the Ministry of Education; rather it's the Ministry of Labour that issues work permits. You cannot teach legally without a work permit. There might be one exception: the British Council. But if they said you don't need a teacher's license, that may be true for work at government schools.
