Thailand implements changes to document requirements for Long-term Visa applications

The Immigration Bureau in Thailand recently implemented changes to the required documents for Long-Term Visa applications (initial and renewal) filed with the Chaengwattana and Samut Prakarn offices and the One Stop Service Center. The Immigration Division 1 (Chaengwattana) and Samut Prakarn offices announced that the following documents are no longer required from sponsoring companies when submitting Long-Term Visa applications: (1) a copy of form and receipt of Corporate Income Tax for the latest fiscal year (i.e., form P.N.D. 50); (2) a copy of form and receipt of the monthly Value Added Tax return (i.e., form P.P. 30) for the three months prior to the filing; and (3) a copy of form and receipt of the monthly social security contribution (i.e., form SPS 1-10) for the three months prior to the filing. In addition, the Chaengwattana office may request copies of the identity documents (i.e., copies of Thai identification cards, or passports and work permits in the case of foreign national) for all authorized directors whose names appear on the sponsor's Company Affidavit.

A Tax Alert prepared by EY's People Advisory Services group, and attached below, provides additional details.
