The InterNations Expat Guide for working and living in Thailand

Are you an expat working and living in Thailand? Or are you preparing to move soon to Bangkok, Pattaya or any other of the Thai international hotspots?

Expat life in Thailand has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like the countless islands in the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand, learning how Thai people celebrate Songkran festival, up to tasting Thailand’s favorite dishes such as phad thai.

However, InterNations does not only address expats in Thailand. We have brief overview guides for various locations around the world – from living in Malaysia to living in Russia.

Working and living in Thailand – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Thailand requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Thai expat life. Living abroad in Thailand raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Thailand?ʺ, ʺWhat are the consequences of overstaying one's visum?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Bangkok should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Thai municipality in Chiang Mai?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Thailand is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Thailand aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Thailand. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from sports and leisure, to local infrastructure or embassies and consulates, up to international schools. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺWhat should I do if I happen to lose my passport?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.
