Trying to get some more news on this as it doesn’t seem to be gazetted yet.
From Phuket gazzete
on 27 March 2018, the Emergency Decree on Non-Thais’ Working Management (No.2) (2018) (“Decree No. 2”) was issued. Decree No. 2 amended Decree No. 1.
Section 70 of Decree No. 1 (and the Act) provided that “a person who is granted permission for working may not carry out the work of the type, with the employer, in a locality or on any working condition that is different from that specified in their work permit unless permission under Section 71 is obtained.”
Section 71 of Decree No. 1 (and the Act) provided that “a person who is granted permission for working, and who intends to change or add the following particulars, must obtain permission from the Registrar: (1) type of work (2) employer (3) location or (4) working conditions.”
And Section 73 of Decree No. 1 (and the Act) provided that “no person may allow a foreigner to work in a manner different from the requirements specified in the work permit.”
However, and very significantly, Section 37 of Decree No. 2 repealed Sections 70, 71, and 73 of Decree No. 1.
Furthermore, Section 28 of Decree No. 2 provides that a work permit holder may engage in any work that is not specifically prohibited to all foreigners on the “Official List” of work prohibited to foreigners.
I was absolutely distraught at the thought of having to deal with my fathers funeral in Thailand, And I only had one week to get things sorted as I had to return to UK and my work! I didn’t speak the language or know the law but Kelvin at thai888 law, was the most patient, kind and knowledgable person who speaks English as well as having the benefits of his working partner being Thai, proved to be the most effective team going. I cannot recommend their services highly enough. Carrie

My USA attorney strongly wanted me to get a Thai will. I found Kelvin to be easy to talk with….and quite professional. After several letters between the two attorneys we had a workable will. What I knew was that I knew I was in good hands….and enjoyed the experience!

Thai888’s legal advice is coherent and consistent. Kelvin and Jeab cut thru the confusions that happen in a multilingual environment. My husband and I are very satisfied with their work for us. Having documents in both Thai and English is most advisable when dealing with the courts here.

I was buying a condo in central Pattaya. I used Thai 888, Kelvin and Jeab were really helpful, They helped me with opening bank accounts, checked everything over and handled the transaction for me. They have a legit office over in Jomtien and I was supplied with all the documents including an English transaction. It was money well spent.
