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However, and very significantly, Section 37 of Decree No. 2 repealed Sections 70, 71, and 73 of Decree No. 1.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 received a call last week from a woman asking about cremation costs in Thailand as her Uncle had died.
Being a very busy professional woman she need to arrange her life and work to make time to come to Thailand to make arrangements for her Uncle’s ashes to be carried back to EU.
This is of course possible with the right documents.
First, Thai888 arranged the Embassy to give us a letter of release. This can only be arranged after the Embassy has received from from the Niece 1 Power of Attorney (POA) in English and 1 POA in Thai, plus a signed copy of her Passport.
Having done this we can then arrange with the Forensic Hospital in Bangkok to collect the Death Certificate (DC), body and cremate it at the temple.
Next step is to take the ashes back to Pattaya for the Niece to take back to the EU.
At the same time Thai888 Law takes the documents to the Department of Foreign Affairs to have the Thai documents translated into English.
The Niece can then pack the ashes in her luggage and declare with Immigration and Customs that she is transporting items correctly.
Also we have arranged with the Police to get the personal property of the deceased back to the family.
Thai888 Law Company can arrange everything for you so do not waste time and money on thinking you can save a few baht here and there.
All docs are in Thai and so you will be at a great disadvantage. Book mark us as we do criminal civil consumer company family LAW 2018
