Required documents for application:

 

Due to the large amount of applications we receive, we recommend to email your application (preferably as one attached file) at least 6 months before you want to start your internship.

 

Your application should contain the following documents and information:

  • Cover letter in German or English
  • CV with photo
  • Certificates of education
  • Preferred period of stay and field of work.

 

Visa:

Citizens of Germany are permitted to stay in Thailand for up to 30 days if entering via international airport and up to 15 days if entering through a land border checkpoint from a neighboring country (Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia) under the Visa Exemption Rule. However, due to Covid-19 pandemic, the border control at each country has many procedures. Therefore, we advise you to apply for a 3-month, non-immigrant ED visa at a Thai Embassy or Consulate in the country where you live. In some countries you are eligible to apply online for a visa; for more information, check the website: https://www.thaievisa.go.th/. After a KAS Resident Representative has approved your internship, we will send you the required documents for your visa application process.
