Restaurant License


A restaurant license is required to operate a restaurant business in Thailand.  

A restaurant license application is submitted to the District office where the restaurant is located.  

After submission of the application, the District office will send out an officer to inspect the restaurant premises.  

The employees of the restaurant must also take and pass a test given at the District office relating to food safety and hygiene.  

After the inspection and tests have been passed, the District office will issue the restaurant license.  

The total process can take up to 1 month or more to complete.  

The District office charges a restaurant license application fee of 100 to 3,000 Baht depending on the size of the restaurant.
