    Re: In Bangkok now looking for teaching position

    Hi Khonrai,

    It's been about 9 months since you posted this thread and I'm very curious to find out how your teaching career is turning out.
    I'm 53 years old and planning (hoping) to move to thailand in about a year. While there, I'd like to keep myself financially afloat for several years until I can tap into my IRA. Teaching English seems to be a viable option for me, so I'm trying to get as much insight from those (especially the 50+ age group) who've been able to make English teaching career happen.

    Re: In Bangkok now looking for teaching position

    I'm just curious: with a working visa is it possible to freelance as a private English tutor? Tuition is a big thing in Singapore n private tutors can often earn more than a teacher employed in a school. Or does one have to be employed by a registered company to get a working visa, which I imagine would be d case?

    Is permanent residency offered in Thailand?

    Hi

    with the changing rules and regs you need a teachers license to get a teachers work permit.
    either through the school or an agency or do your self but school has to provide the necessary
    paperwork. many teachers do tutor after class and on weekends for extra cash
    many private tutors do not have work permit of license. I wonder how the visa crackdown will affect them

    and you must have a four year degree from an accredited University or college

    It is very hard to stay in thailand there is no such thing as permanent residency even with retirement visa you have to check in every 90 days

    Maybe this is a question that has been explained numerous times before: will it not make more sense for d government to grant pr to foreign spouses? That will mean foreign resources get to stay in n grow d local economy...

    There is such a thing as Permanent Residency in Thailand, but it takes time and money to obtain and is only open to 100 applicants from each country each year. http://www.thaiembassy.com/thailand/...-residency.php

    Re: In Bangkok now looking for teaching position

    YY, no fast link to permanent residency for foreign spouses has been my major complaint (just about only complaint) for a long time. I have sometimes wondered if the government thinks they can prevent marriage between Thais and foreigners with their policies. Maybe they will re-consider their archaic policies sometime in the future.
