      The relevant page for teachers in Thailand is posted below.

      One major change is the requirement for documents from the Teachers' Council of Thailand. Until now the Labour Office in our province has never asked for any documents related to The Teachers' Council of Thailand but the rules below seems to be the most recent. I'll have to wait until April 2011 to find out whether these rules are enforced in our province.

      Not mentioned in this document but our Labour Office also requires a copy of a document that proves that the teacher is registered for Social Security, a copy of the tax clearance receipt and a copy of the PND91 form (tax form).

      Re: Work Permit Renewal Application (WP.5) for Foreign Teachers in Thailand

      I just came back from the Labour Office in Phetchaburi for my annual work permit renewal.

      At this office the documents below have to be submitted when renewing the work permit.

      • Application form WP.5
      • original work permit
      • copy of the passport
      • copy of the employment contract
      • copy of a teacher license or provisional teaching permit or a guarantee letter issued by The Teachers' Council of Thailand
      • copy of the tax clearance receipt and the PND 91 form
      • copy of membership of the Social Security program

      I'll have my work permit back on Monday morning the 25th April.

      Teachers have to submit a medical certificate according to the new standards (syphilis, etc.) when applying for an initial work permit (WP.2).

      I guess that has changed. Here's a screenshot of the latest WP.5 requirements.

      Re: Work Permit Renewal Application (WP.5) for Foreign Teachers in Thailand

      I got my non-B extended another year, today. I am good until Mar 31 2013. Immediately after the Non-B, the head of the Thai Dept took my WP and PP to get the WP renewed. The only thing that I had to do was give blood (and did that about a month ago). I am in my 3rd contract and assume that I failed miserably in my attempt to get the teacher license. We will see. Back to the WP, tho, I suppose I am lucky that my WP came due between the time I took the TCT#9 & when the results are announced. It does make me wonder, with the Teacher license requirement, if this can be exploited. Whenever you apply for a WP, make sure you have taken whichever test is closest to your renewal date for the WP.

      Re: #5 - my medical certification - my BP was checked, and I was tested for syphilis. Nothing else. They did not check for leprosy, or if I am insane.

      Perhaps when I go to pick up the WP, I will correct the spelling (righ s/b right) and grammar (completely s/b complete).
      Also, the majority of the forms were filled out in English, not in Thai. One thing the teacher took with her that I do not see listed here, is a list of all the foreign teachers and their salaries. I was disappointed to find out that I am not the highest paid foreigner.
