Recruitment License in Thailand

Business License

If your company engages in recruitment services, a recruitment license in Thailand needs to be acquired through the Thai Labor Department to allow this activity.

Requirements to Apply for a Recruitment License

Prior to applying for a recruitment license in Thailand, following requirements need to be considered:

  1. The director of the company applying for the recruitment business needs to be a Thai national. If there are more than one authorized directors in the company, a resolution needs to be passed by the board of directors appointing a Thai director to be authorized to sign for a recruitment business.
  2. The company must have at least 51% of Thai shareholders. They can either be Thai individuals or juristic persons.
  3. The office of the company needs to be at least 16 square meters big. It should be separated from other companies and show the company name at the front of the office. A letter of consent for the use of the address for this purpose is required by the landlord. The official will inspect the office before issuing the approval. The official will also be entitled to annual inspection without prior notice.
  4. In order to obtain the recruitment license, a guarantee of 100,000 THB should also be paid to the authorities.
  5. The criminal record of the director of the company is also required.

These are the requirements that need to be completed by the company. After the license is granted, the company is bound to change the name of the company by adding the words “recruitment business” to its legal name. In the objectives of the company, recruitment business also has to be taken up.

After the submission of all the required documents, the license should be issued within 15 working days. It is also worth noting that the inspection of the criminal record may take up to two months. The government license fee is 5,000 THB.
