Default Thailand wants tech/internet experts

Thailand has announced a visa program that is intended to attract tech/internet experts to immigrate.

Supposedly, it will make getting a one year visa easier to obtain if you are that expert. If you can start, work for, or manage an internet company, and desire to relocate here, you may want to check out the specific requirements.

It was reported in in a couple of newspapers. My suggestion would be to follow the Bangkok Post to see how it develops. Progress, such as this, is agonizingly slow in Thailand.

I have seen the same information.
Thailand is actively looking for IT experts, tech experts, engineers, etc.

It seems like they don't really want you there most of the time, but this is an exception ahah.

Anyway, I guess this is a very good opportunity. Especially if you are american, as I believe that the minimum salary is around 80 000, which is way enough for this country.

Yeah, Thailand is definitely the place to be right now if you are a tech expert. Authorities are willing to get you out there, and you will end up enjoying a standard of living that you would never get in a Western country.

Decent salary + sun + beaches + excellent street food + cheap massages= heaven on earth ahah

Would that include mechanics and CDL HOLDERS?

No. Plenty of Thai mechanics and drivers.
