Forms and ( documents needed for application process


0 - RAST Life membership form

      First of all the RAST membership is a pre-condition to get an supporting letter for the callsign application process to NBTC.

  • Passport copy (photo page and visa page)
  • 2x recent Passport size photo
  • RAST membership form incl. signature
  • Copy home license
  • RAST Life membership fee
1 - Import License - (has to be issued before import - 6 month valid!) -
        Only for OP's from countries with Reciprocal agreement

  • Passport copy
  • Proxy form incl. 10 Baht document stamp - if done by somebody else
  • ID card or passport of the proxy
  • HS Callsign copy
  • Import License form incl. signature
  • RIG specification - e.g. datasheet and/or brochure
  • RIG details incl. type and serial number
  • Proforma Invoice
  • Application fee
  • Customs Declaration form - is needed at the Airport or border to Thailand to declare equipment - to be obtained in advanced from Customs or Cargo forwarder/shipping company
           
  NOTE: Only RIG's from these List are proved for import permit by the NBTC.

      General Note: Equipment which will be imported has to be investigated by NBTC officers on a test bench immediately after arrival in Thailand to get the NBTC sticker. Notice this registration and approval can only be done if you paid officially the import duty (up to 5% of proforma invoice but is negotiable!) at customs - receipt necessary (!)

Important!! Do not bring your transmitting equipment to Thailand without first getting your license and obtaining an import permit. This applies to all transceivers, even handhelds. It is illegal to import or to possess such equipment in Thailand without having proper documentation from the authorities. Even if you have a valid amateur radio operating license in Thailand, you need an import permit for a transceiver, which must undergo NBTC inspection, registration, and receive a license (after Customs duty has been paid) before it can be used.

Legals:

Illegal equipment - "well we don't care" - be careful each item could cost you 5 years/each in jail - also known as "Bangkok Hilton", including parts as e.g. crystals or devices as PA's and you are caught! These are the laws here in Thailand - HS/E2, if you do NOT have proper Hamradio licenses in Thailand. Be aware that there are also a repair license and measuring equipment license available!!


Illegal RIG's without licenses and that could happened - real story!
