What Documents Needed?

Recommended Posts

As I understand it the documents are different for teachers. I am picking up my work permit tomorrow and then heading to immigration to extend for another year. I just wanted to clarify what immigration will want to see. I'm in Chiang Mai.

Basically the same things you needed when applying for your work permit.

Here's the general information for working at a school.

2.4 Non-Immigrant Visa Category "B" (Teaching) Foreigners who intend to take up employment as school teachers at the levels below university level in Thailand must submit the following required documents:

- Passport or travel document with validity of not less than 6 months

- Completed visa application form

- Recent passport-sized photograph (4 x 6 cm) of the applicant taken within the past 6 months.

- Letter of acceptance from employing institute or school in Thailand.

- Letter of approval from government agencies such as the Office of the Private Education Commission, the Office of the Basic Education Commission.

- Evidence of educational qualification such as diplomas or teaching certificates.

- School license or business registration, list of shareholders and school profile.

(- Applicant's resume.

- Police certificate verifying that applicant has no criminal record or equivalents or letter issued by authorised agencies in applicant's country. (The requirement of the submission of such police certificate is optional. The applicant must submit it if consular officer requests he/she to do so. This requirement is effective as from May 2007))


You might have read at other threads on this forum that some Immigration Offices require a teacher license exemption document issued by The teachers' Council of Thailand.

Good luck.
