Do you need a Thai work permit? Apart from a Thai Business Visa, a foreigner needs a work permit to be able to work legally in the Kingdom.
It is normally the job of the employer to arrange this for you. However, there are also times wherein you would need to take care of this concern by yourself. The hiring company in Thailand may not have the staff to do this on your behalf. This means the company will just have to furnish you with the necessary documents. They tend to leave you to organize your work permit on your own.
Normally, if you will be applying a business visa from the Thai consulate/embassy in your home country for the purpose of employment in Thailand, the embassy officer may require the initial work permit application called WP3 as a requirement for the visa application.
This will be taken care of your employer as most of the documents required are company-related papers. Once you get to Thailand with the Non B visa, you would need to accomplish the other required documents such as the medical certificate, photos, proof of degree obtained and the like. These will be brought and be submitted to the Ministry of Labor and it takes 10 business days for the Ministry to issue the work permit.
