  • The Procedures for Obtaining Promotional Privileges page walks you through the application process of applying for BOI promotional privileges - from the time an application is submitted to the time a business starts operation.
  • The BOI statistics page provides information about the amount of investment, both from within and outside Thailand. The data is displayed in a variety of ways, including by country of origin, and conditions, such as export-orientation or size of project.

In addition to the guarantees, permissions and fiscal and non-tax incentives the BOI offers as part of its investment promotion package, there are two units under the BOI that facilitate investment by speeding up the paperwork associated with government regulations.

One Stop Center For Visas And Work Permits

The BOI coordinated the establishment of a One-Stop Service Center for Visas and Work Permits. The center can process applications or renewals of visas and work permits within three hours, assuming all required documents are provided. In addition, the center handles many other transactions, including changing visa status (to non-immigrant status from tourist or transit), payment of fines, and processing of re-entry stamps, all within three hours or less.

Investors or experts granted privileges under the Investment Promotion Act of 1977 who are allowed to stay in the Kingdom of Thailand on a temporary basis to undertake investment or business activities can also have access to the services provided by the One-Stop Center.

One Start One Stop Investment Center (OSOS)

To make the process of opening a business easier and to provide a central source of information regarding business operations, the Thai government assigned the Board of Investment to bring investment-related agencies under one roof.

The OSOS, which is located downtown, adjacent to a subway station, has staff from almost two dozen agencies available to help investors with various applications to make sure investors understand what is needed to register a company, obtain investment promotion privileges, obtain a foreign business license, complete an environmental impact assessment, request permission to use land for industrial operations, obtain utilities, etc.

In addition to assisting investors with procedural matters, staff from the various agencies are available to consult with investors on a range of topics. What this means is that if an investor has a question that requires an interpretation from more than one agency, rather than having to go from office to office in search of answers, the matter can be addressed by the various experts at the OSOS.

The bottom line is that the OSOS helps investors by cutting through red tape and allows the government to be more responsive to investor needs.

Both the One Stop Center for Visas and Work Permits and the OSOS are located on the 18th Floor, Chamchuri Square Building, Phayathai Road, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330.
