Depending on what you wish to do in Thailand you would need to supply the Thai Embassy with the documents needed for what it is that you wish to do. Teaching, owning a business or investment. These are the basics for the business visa.
The business visa is there just for that – business. If you want to teach in Thailand and need a business visa for your work permit application then you would need to provide the following:
1. Police certificate verifying that you haves no criminal record;
2. A contract from your school;
3. Evidence of educational training;
4. Letter of approval from the education department.
Those are the very basics that they will require from you to submit for the application for a business visa for the purposes of teaching in Thailand. Normally the schools know what to provide and will hand you a bundle of documents for submission to the embassy. If it is your own private school then it would be best to speak to on of our attorneys in Thailand with regards to drafting and obtaining all the needed forms and documents needed for the application for the visa.
