Can I work in Thailand?

Work permit

A completely other subject is to find you a “normal

paid” job in Thailand. You have to keep in mind that if

it is a job that a Thai national can perform at

15,000.00 THB per month, the employer will not pay

you as foreigner 80,000.00 THB per month to do the

same job. The employer also has to go to all the legal

obstacles to provide you a very expensive work permit

to be legal.Only specific jobs that cannot be done by

Thai nationals will be paid well. You also can find many

jobs based on commission only, such as all kind of

sales jobs. For that, you just have to keep an eye on

the job offers in local papers for Jobs in Thailand.

Officially jobs on commission only and no basic wage are illegal in Thailand but it is a common practice. If the foreigner agreed to take this job without basic wage, he also breaks the law.Lots of companies abroad will need staff in Thailand because this country is expanding at a very high speed.

To find that, we suggest you keep an eye on internet search engines and Jobs Abroad in Thailand could bring you in the right direction and in contact with the right companies.In any case, coming to Thailand without any savings or financial back up for at least a few months only can get you in problems and often faster than you could imagine. Spending money in Thailand is a lot easier that making it.

The answer on the question if you can work as foreigner in Thailand is indeed YES but do not expect a normal job offer and expect a long searching time to find a well paid job.
