Post New Topic

Hi,

Does anyone know (who is currently working in Thailand with a working permit as a teacher) if you need to legalize your degree in order to obtain a working permit?

I can find the info for China and Korea but not for Thailand. I hope it's not required.

Please advise.

I am not teaching here, but if you find that you need "legalization" here is the way to get it https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/legal/travel-legal-considerations/authentication-of-american-academic-credentials.html

And based on this https://eslauthority.com/teach/thailand/ you need a certified degree and transcript from a 4-year college
A TOEIC score of 600+ or IELTS score of 5+ if you’re from a non-native speaking country
Non-Immigrant ‘B’ Visa
Supporting documentation, like criminal background checks, medical certificates, university transcripts and perhaps more, dependent on the official reviewing your applications.
There are more requirements if you are planning to teach at the university level or higher. I recommend you check out https://www.ajarn.com/, a site for prospective foreign teachers in Thailand which has been functioning since 1999

I should mentioned before that different schools may see the requirements differently so what you are told ere may not apply in every case. What level do you teach at, I may be able to ask a friend who is an elementary school principal.
