If you are going to be teaching in Thailand then you need to apply for a Thai Business Visa. You need to provide the following documents when you do apply for this visa at a Thai embassy. We have listed these documents which need to be submitted with your application form.
Note that the requirements do change however this is what is still applicable in 2013 with the Thai embassies in Asia. Note also that if you have had more than one Thai “B” visa before without having applied for a work permit then they will turn down your application even with the correct documents. The Thai embassy in Laos and Cambodia are very difficult in this regard.
