Work Permits, Visas, and Professional Certifications

PSI, an affiliate of AsiaPac Consulting is a Bangkok based company offering professional Thailand visa, work permit and immigration services for all types of Thailand visas to individuals, corporations and expatriates.

PSI is the natural extension of our human resource services, providing highly experienced expert advice and solutions for visa, work permit and immigration matters. We view ourselves not just as a visa and immigration company, but also as a trusted service who will handle, assist and guide you through the various steps necessary to obtain your visa, work permit and all services pertaining to live and work legally in Thailand. Whether you are looking to visit, work, retire or invest in Thailand, PSI is your trusted companion who can help you every step of the way in the often confusing visa and work permit processes.

Probably the most confusing issues related to visa and work permits, are the constantly changing requirements and rules. Although basic supporting documents and requirements are usually constant, other documents and requirements can vary at different consulates and embassies around the world, and at Thai Immigration Offices within Thailand. The requirements also can often vary from officer to officer, who has the discretion to ask for additional supporting documents and can refuse or approve your visa based on his or her opinions and feelings. PSI has experience dealing with Thai Embassies, Consulates and Immigration Offices all over the world and within Thailand, and we have the expertise that is necessary to sort through any problems or difficulties that may arise. We are constantly updating our knowledge database and offer up-to-date services that are constantly evolving.

Please let us show you how we can custom tailor your visa needs based on your individual circumstances. Whether you wish to apply for your visa at an embassy or consulate abroad, or here in Thailand, PSI can provide the professional visa services to fit your needs and can quickly and efficiently help you to fulfill your goals. Please go to our Contact Us webpage to begin the process of moving to Thailand, or contact us.

Grad Cap

Whether you’re considering teaching in Asia or are looking for qualified teachers for your school or program, Professional Services International (PSI) is your one-stop resource for the teaching profession in Asia. PSI, along with its affiliates, Asia Top Jobs and AsiaPac Consulting has a proven track record of professional development, professional studies, personal development, and great success matching companies, corporations, and institutions with highly qualified individuals.

The demand for teachers, especially English teachers is great in countries like Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Japan, South Korea and China. Both students and professionals in Asia know that one of the best ways to get ahead in life is to learn the international language of business, English. Government schools, private schools, language schools, and international schools are constantly seeking qualified teachers to fill the demand.

Although each country has their own specific regulations and laws regarding qualifications for foreigners who teach in their countries, many of the qualifications and job requirements are similar. To teach English at language schools in most countries in Asia, a bachelor’s degree and a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate is required, other English language teaching certificates are often acceptable. A native English language speaker is almost always preferred and is a requirement of many schools. Teachers with university teaching credentials and prior experience are highly sought after and can often choose between the best teaching jobs available at private and international schools in the countries of their choice.

Whether you’re a recent university graduate looking to gain valuable experience in the teaching profession or an experienced teacher exploring the possibilities of starting a new life in what has become the most vibrant region of the world, PSI can help you to realize your goals. The possibilities and opportunities are almost endless in Asia. Some people travel overseas to teach and never leave, and others gain the valuable experience that leads to better employment opportunities and financial freedom in their home countries or other regions of the world.

Professional Services International is always seeking qualified teachers year around, and we have proven experience and a successful record in matching quality jobs with quality individuals.
