With a Thai Elite visa can a person work legally as a digital Nomad ?

Recommended Posts

Thailand Elite has sent a mail to all the members some years ago which was addressed to all the members and visible to all.

Therefore each long time Thailand Elite member should have the list of all the members up to that moment.

Nothing fishy about this.


It was sold to over 2,800 members.

I have the database in my possession.

I hope you have the rights to have that database whistling.gif

As a digital nomad you can only work in your home country.

Shall we make a big Thailand Elite Members' party?

The (quality)(imported) beer for everyone is on me :)

If we send an email to 2800 members, there should be enough people to make it nice and fun :)

Which is a very valid and interesting point, in the Thai context, the digtial nomads on here are mixing immigration and "business" issues together.

There is nothing stopping a Thai national operating an on line business and I am sure there are quite a few that do, so yes one can operate an on line business from Thailand no problem, but the western on liners want to tie the two together run a business" and in the same breath they want a "special" long term "visa" to operate that business from Thailand, not pay income tax, not undertake any sort of investment in Thailand, by virtue of putting money into a venture or employing Thai nationals.

Sorry for the question, they should protect better their Elite members, with so many scammers around that database should be keep safe...

I was subscribed in Internations and they usually meet in Bangkok, but it's different to send the entire database or the members emails with many CC

All email addresses visible in the To: line ? Bad, bad practice. I would've thought an Elite scheme were very stringent about the privacy of their members.

Thailand isn't interested in busting these digital gypos or whatever they are called. Selling fake designer stuff on ebay. Thailand just wants them to cough up the cash for a non-imm visa which they all seem very reluctant to do.

fake designer stuff on ebay, "professional" gambling on line, porn sites, these are some of the reason's why there will never be a "digital nomad" type visa/set up simply because it cant be controlled as what some one gets up to as regards running an on line "business"

Yeah you're right there SP most of these digital gypos are porn mongers. It's the small timers selling the fake stuff.

Guys, you have no clue about digital normads i think. First, selling stuff on ebay is not what usually is understood under this term, cause this is physical trading. This is not something what you can do completly just with your computer. Producing porn is completly illegal in Thailand.

I don't now why some people are so envy about people that are free enough to dont need to work for an fixed employer, that they consider this lifestyle only with derogatory descriptions and associations. Some digital normads earn very good money just from them pure brain work. That's what the typical digital normad does, working with the brain, not with physical things or forbidden things. Beeing envy is not a nice behavior, enviers and haters will neve become happy at all. If everything is perfect in the own life, their are no reasons to devalue the lifestyle of others and so show envy about this lifestyle.

the whole debate is moot anyway, as much as people whinge and stamp their little feet and throw their toys out the cot, and say its just not fair, Digital nomads, on liners, independently wealthy, free lancers or what ever title they give themselves will not be getting a "special" visa to live and work in Thailand long term, so suck it up ladies

You seem pretty convinced that you are a special snowflake who the military government will make an exception for. All farangs are in the firing line, good sir, including you. So I wouldn't get too smug.

You forgot 'the sky is falling, the sky is falling'.

Yeah, they won't be given a new visa to live and work in thailand longterm, because they already have the thai elite card 5 years / 20 years, right ?

Digital nomad....oh . Anyway can some hi-horse farang here explain if I rent my condo in canada and declare it on my Canadian income tax am I also working illegally in Thailand? If I get an email from my tennant about malfunctioning washing machine and I need to contact a repairman in Canada about the issue am I working online?

Even better... if you are receiving your pension from uk should you not be declaring Thai income tax?

Some people are so full of hate they can't even understand what they type.

answer 1. no your not

answer 2. no your not

answer 3. no you dont because there is a reciprocal tax agreement between the UK and Thailand and if income is taxed at source which it is in the UK, no tax is payable in Thailand

Nice try but no cigar, seems your typing things you dont understand either

If "digital nomad" is paying tax in his home country is he working illegally in Thailand? Simple answer yes or no?

No. The issue with "digital nomads" is not needing a work visa. They obviously do not. The issue is that unless they are over 50, they can't legally stay here at all. Over 50 digital nomads can stay here on a retirement visa with no issues. It doesn't make sense to have a visa class defined by age. If you are 45 and have regular income from abroad you should be able to get a retirement visa just like a 51 year old can.
