Medical certificate is one of the documents required for Thai Work Permit application.
I went to Vejthani Hospital (again) at Ladprao Road 111, at Bangkapi. I had my previous medical check-up done here, for my previous work permit application. Since they already have my record, passport is no longer required.
This time, I was informed by the Visa and Work Permit agency engaged by my new employer, to get 5 tests + 1 test (blood) for work permit, which includes:
- Drug addiction
Tertiary Syphilis Third Stage was omitted for this round, compared to the first medical check up I did for my first work permit application.
Took me around three hours … And two hours were spent waiting for blood test’s resuts. They took my blood for test, measure my blood pressure (I passed despite not having enough sleep, still jetlag from my Europe trip), and a little chat with the doctor … any drug and alchohol problem ..
All this for THB 852:
- Laboratory investigation (THB 252)
- NSG charge (THB 150)
- Service OPD charge (THB 150)
- First outpatient care (THB 300)
Read that this medical check-up can also be done at clinics. 20 minutes max, and costs around THB 100. That’s where I’ll be going, if ever I need to go through this again.
