Immigration Law

Thailand issues numerous forms of visas, which allow different activities. A “wrong” visa easily leads to expulsion or fines. Work permits are also subject to strict conditions; in some cases, high capital contributions and the employment of up to four Thai employees for each foreigner are required. Reporting obligations and deadlines must be observed. As a Thai-German law firm in Bangkok, we are always familiar with the changed legal situation and provide reliable advice to our clients.
