The Complexities of Importing into Thailand

As a historically underdeveloped country with just above the global average for internet penetration, Thailand has made massive inroads into ICT development in the last decade. Displaying a steady growth and appetite for Information Technology, the country is booming, and top-tier Tech start-ups are thriving. The relatively low cost of skills and high standard of living has made Thailand an appealing destination for companies looking to expand. Customs and compliance in Thailand can pose a challenge, especially when importing second-hand, refurbished goods and batteries. Certain permit requirements can also hinder shipment flows if they are not correctly managed. Special trade zones and a reactive valuation process are also hurdles that can potentially hold up the flow of goods into Thailand.
