There are many laws and regulations around Work Permits and Tourist Visas in Thailand. These laws are frequently revised by the Immigration Bureau.
Tourists who wish to travel to Thailand must obtain a Tourist Visa before doing so. They can apply for it through the Royal Thai Embassy or through their local consulate. A standard Tourist Visa is generally granted for a period of 60 days. It may, however, be extended for another 30 days.
People from Hong Kong and 42 other countries (which have a mutual agreement with Thailand) can enter the country without a Visa. Such people can stay in Thailand for up to 30 days per visit. However, they cannot stay in Thailand for more than 90 days in a six month period.
People who wish to work in Thailand need to obtain a non-immigrant-B-Visa. People who wish to come to Thailand to conduct business also need to get the same visa. This can also be obtained through the Royal Thai Embassy or the local consulate.
