IMPACT – HIGH
What is the change? The Immigration Office at the One Stop Service Center (OSSC) and Immigration Bureau at Chaengwattana has announced new requirements for visa applicants.
What does the change mean? Employers submitting initial visa extension and visa renewal applications must submit original receipts from the relevant authorities, confirming that they have requested all supporting documents, paid all government fees and that the documents have been officially certified.
Background: Previously, original receipts showing payment of government fees were required to certify a company’s monthly salary withholding tax return (P.N.D.1). The change requires that companies submit the original receipts showing payment of government fees for certification of all the following supporting tax documents. Upon completion of the visa extension process, the immigration officers will return the original receipts to the company. The following documents require an original receipt:
Analysis and Comments: Immigration authorities are requiring these original receipts of government fees to verify that the relevant authorities issued the certified documents. The rule does not impact companies that are filing visa applications under Board of Investment (BOI) or the Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand (IEAT) or the Department of Minerals and Fuels (DMF).
