    Not seen the OP since the first post, so maybe he's woken up?

    Here you go...although "Pattaya Investments" seems a bit of an oxymoron

    http://www.pattayainvestments.com/go...a-thailand.php

    And the imaginatively named:

    Selling things on e-bay whilst in Thailand also requires a work permit. In fact all work in Thailand requires a work permit as it does in any country I know of (or the equivalent visa). It is the same as selling on e-bay in the UK and not filing the appropriate tax return; many do it but it is not legal.

    That is the official line. Earning money from various websites whilst in Thailand seems to be something you can do without drawing the attention of the authorities (as far as I know Stickman has no work permit for example and he is very visible). In fact TAT organised a competition for the best medical tourism blog and one of the winners from Thailand was here on a retirement visa.

    But if you are looking at earning a living via the web it might not be impossible to qualify for a work permit and become legitimate. I know a freelance writer here that got a work permit for example. The last thing you want to do is have your dream destroyed by deportation as the penalty for working without a permit is quite severe.

    Do you mean a settlement/spouse visa?? if so I guess it means you've decided to stick it out in the UK?

    Bear in mind there are other requirements for the settlement visa in addition to that of the visit visa and expect a longer turn around than 4 days

    Yes, you do! But there is hope, you might not get it

    Suppliers (changing prices without notice), local authorities (people turning up with new 'licence' requirements), police ('taxing' him), landlord (rent and key money issues), customers (not enough of them), staff (unreliable, thieving), other foreign bar owners and associated 'hangers on' (threatening him), other Thai bar owners (not threatening him directly, but definitely behind some of the other issues, including the staff issues!) no work permit (so having to sit and watch while 'his' staff messed up his business).


    This explains it perfectly.
    I've seen all this in Udon Thani
    If your going to open something, cater for the Thai's.
