Entering and leaving for some countries requires a valid visa; a tourist visa, a student visa, or a working visa. Among all types of visas, the working visa is known to be one of the most challenging visas to apply for. For foreigners who wish to work in Thailand, it is also important that they have important documents such as a valid visa and work permits.
The Chairperson of the Foundation for Human Rights and Development (HRDF) issued a request to the Thai government to reconsider the employment policy under Section 64 of the Royal Ordinance on the Foreign Workers Management B.E. 2560, to amend the Labour Relations Act., and to provide opportunities for foreign workers to form labour unions.
Initially, a foreigner who wishes to perform the duties of an arbitrator and an attorney of the parties for the arbitration proceedings in Thailand must apply for a work permit, according to Section 59 of Foreigners’ Working Management Emergency Decree, B.E. 2560.
