Make the most of living and working in Bangkok

Expat living in Bangkok raises plenty of questions, for instance: ʺWhat are the requirements from Thai authorities to get a residence permit?”, ʺWhat should I do if I happen to lose my passport?ʺ, or ”Who can recommend chambers of foreign trade in town?”

Finding all this expat information about living and working in Bangkok takes a lot of time. Our Bangkok expat guide is there to make your relocation to Bangkok as easy as possible. Starting with embassies and consulates to information about local infrastructure, the guide covers all the different aspects of expat life in Bangkok.

However, InterNations does not only address expats in Bangkok. We have brief overview guides for various locations around the world - from living in Austin to living in Munich.
