Documentation for Application for Overseas Job Placement License - Case of Application at the Provincial Employment Office where the Applicant has Established Office

As stipulated in the 1985 Occupational Job Placement and Labor Protection Act, Article 30 prohibits anyone from providing job placement services for individuals seeking employment abroad unless permission has been granted by the Central Employment Registrar. Moreover, Article 50 prohibits foreign employers or their representatives from directly recruiting employees in Thailand to work overseas. They must coordinate with the Employment Office or the Department of Employment to make arrangements.
