    I do not know about the army, but with a Thai ID card and aThai passport you will not need any papers to work here such as a work permit, just come and find a job and report for work. and anything connected to computers should be a pretty good trade.
    Wish I could help you with the army service thing, but i can't.

    Check the Bangkok Post online, help wanted ads for jobs with your qualifications and get a feel for what is available

    Pardon me for barging in with a question, but it is generally related to the original post:

    What exactly does it take to get a Thai ID card and passport? Evidently having one Thai parent is sufficient, since billydark got his documents. However, what if that Thai parent is now a citizen of another country? Does that change the situation?

    My niece (by marriage), whose parents are both Thai citizens but who herself is a U.S. citizen, got her Thai ID and passport when we all went to Thailand recently, so apparently Thailand will recognize dual citizenship (although the U.S. does not!). Does one ever lose one's Thai citizenship in the eyes of the Thai government?

    Again, sorry for slightly derailing this thread, but it got me curous. The reason I ask is I am wondering if my daughters could get Thai IDs and passports someday, if they chose to do so. My wife is Thai (although now a naturalized U.S. citizen), and my daughters were born in the U.S.

    Actually the US does! It's pretty common these days for US Citizens to have other citizenship's. There was an article published not to long back about the subject. It seems those of Irish descent have been at the forefront of getting citizenship and another passport.

    A good website on this subject is http://www.richw.org/dualcit/law.html or http://www.foreignborn.com/visas_imm...ationality.htm

    Hey, thanks Peterg, I haven't had a chance yet to fully digest that article, but it looks really good. I hadn't been aware there were recent developments regarding dual citizenship.

    Anybody able to answer my question about requirements for getting Thai ID and passport (i.e., I'm too lazy to try to find out from official channels, and am hoping somebody knows the answer!).
