How to renew license for foreign teachers in Thailand?

All Teachers in Thailand must have a license to teach. Khurusapha or Teachers council of Thailand issues Teaching license or temporary permits. To get a license you must have at least a bachelors degree and a one year study leading to a diploma or certificate in Education/ graduate degree in Education. If you don’t have a degree in education or additional teacher qualifications they let you teach by giving a temporary permit or waiver. You can get up to 3 temporary permits and each time you get one it is valid for 2 years.

After the third time, the teacher is expected to submit proof of additional qualifications with a minimum of 1 year study leading to a certificate or diploma in education.

The new procedure to renew license online explained

Because of the Covid-19 restrictions and the problems of mobility, Khurusapha (TCT) now wants schools to apply for 13 digit member number for all foreign teachers and submit their application online. This is new and is effective March 2020. This announcement is in Thai but you could use google translate. The announcement says they will stop processing licenses over the counter. The entire process is now online and the license can be downloaded.
Schools that are in the KSP system can do it faster.

I got my latest license  in about 48 hours. My school did it real fast. I greatly appreciate the back up plan and the professionalism displayed by the Teachers council of Thailand. I hope this article was helpful to those who were looking to renew their license during the virus tragedy.

  1. Hello. The license that you renew in 48 hours is the 5-year license, isn’t it? Do you know how long do I have to wait for the 13-digit member number? Thank you.

    1. apologize for the late response. you usually get it within 3 months after you apply for the 5 year license, If that’s what you meant.

  2. Can I apply online for a new license by myself or must my school be in the KSP system? Anyone can explain it step by step? My school has no clue.

  3. Hello. Please help for more details of tempo license renewal. My very first tempo licensed is about to expire by Nov 22, 2021… with this granting that is an online renewal process now due to covid19… my question is do I need to get another TOEIC test then prior to the renewal process?… thanks in advance
