Thailand Work Permits Now Available Through Phone App

Thailand’s Labour Ministry and the Immigration Bureau have launched the first smartphone app on  allowing expats to lodge requests for work permits and have them approved, though applicants will still need to make at least two “offline” trips to specially set up centres to complete the procedure.

The app, Thailand Digital Work Permit, was introduced to companies and foreign employees on Friday.

The first person to be digitally granted a work permit was Japan’s Koichiro Suda. The permit was approved by Waranon Pitiwan, director-general of the Department of Employment (DOE).

Mr Suda works as a domestic sales coordinator for Minebea Thailand Co Ltd, one of the firms supported by the Office of the Board of Investment (BoI).

The app resulted from a project jointly launched by the BoI, the Labour Ministry and the Immigration Bureau called Single Window.
