Employment of Foreign Unskilled Labours for BOI Promoted Projects

On 4th December 2018, the BOI Office issued its Notification No. Por. 11/2561 re: Permission to Employ Foreign Unskilled Labours in Investment Promoted Projects to cancel its 2016 notification on permission to employ foreign unskilled labours.

Previously, BOI promoted projects could employ only foreign unskilled labours from the neighboring countries which signed a memorandum of understanding with Thailand for having migrant labours work for BOI promoted projects up to 31st December 2018.

The new BOI notification allows BOI promoted projects employ foreign unskilled labours from any country who legally enters into Thailand.  However, the BOI promoted projects are still required to fully comply with laws and regulations of other government authorities in relation to employment of unskilled labours.
