DO I NEED A VISA TO WORK IN PHUKET?

Based on the current rules you do indeed require a visa to legally secure a job in Thailand if you are an EU citizen. If your country is outside of the European Union and you are not an EU citizen then you do still need a visa. Those from the United States, Canada, Australia and the rest of the world usually need a visa to do any work on the island.

Despite this many employers conclude their recruitment without paperwork meaning that you would not require a visa. Our experienced in resort team are on hand to help you obtain any paperwork necessary to allow you to secure your dream job in Phuket this winter!

WHAT AGE DO YOU NEED TO BE TO WORK IN PHUKET

Our guests have to be 18 years old to work full-time in Phuket, whether or not you’re an EU citizen. The reason for this is that a lot of the jobs going are in venues which serve alcohol.

Most of our guests are around this age so it’ll be super easy for you to find like-minded people to make friends with during your stay.

WHAT IS THE PAY LIKE IN PHUKET

What you earn whilst working in Phuket this winter is dependant on a number of factors such as which job role you decide to opt for as well as some being based on commission payment.

 

Once in peak season you can be earning more than €100 per day, work hard and you’ll be reap the rewards. 

The average wage sits at around €30 per shift - this is a great basic when you consider the potential of tips and commission on top.

WHAT IS THE COST OF LIVING IN PHUKET

Cost of living is very low cost in Phuket and you will find that the minimum wage is enough for your monthly allowances. Rep Route will help with the funding of your social life. We offer our guests a whole range of generous discounts, such as wristbands for free or cheaper entry to clubs, or your name on the guestlist.

Our helpful staff can also recommend the best local bars and restaurants for you to visit which offer cheap deals. You’ll find that a lot of the main tourist bars have higher prices, but with our suggestions of the more local hangouts, you’ll find that the prices are much lower.

WHAT PERSONALITY SUITS WORKING IN PHUKET

Working in Phuket gives you the opportunity to be as relaxed or as crazy as you like. With many venues sporting a relaxed, chill vibes offering you the base to serve drinks & socialise on a level that shall allow you to meet many fun interesting individuals all summer long! The island has a long history of being a place where people go to party and relax. The music, dancing, beaches and sunsets make it a special place indeed.

The great part about working in Phuket is that it’s suitable for all personality types. A lot of the time you’ll be working with other people, so an open mind and a willingness to meet new friends is always ideal.

Having the confidence to talk with strangers is great, but a working holiday is Phuket is also a fab way to build these skills. A job in a bar, for example, is perfect for people who often feel a little shy to come out of their comfort zone and get chatting to people. Everyone on the party scene in Phuket is warm, friendly, and very used to welcoming new guests, so you’ll never have a problem making friends and fitting in.

CAN I WORK IN BARS IN PHUKET

The majority of jobs in Phuket operate around the hospitality sector, meaning the likes of bars, clubs, restaurants & shisha venues are always on the lookout for staff members to join their team. Barwork is very popular with our guests and is a great way to meet people and make new friends.

 

You don't need bar experience to get bar work in Phuket as most venues will offer training once you are in resort. Should you arrive with an open mind and the work ethic employers are looking for you shall have no problems here. You shall be serving drinks and chatting with other tourists and party people, adding to not only theirs but also your own holiday experience. 

WHEN IS THE SEASON IN PHUKET

“The Season” in Phuket refers to the most popular time of the year for tourists on the island. We start bringing our guests at the beginning of December, just as the season is kicking off. This gives you more of an opportunity to find the best job for you and meet new friends just as they are arriving too. Thailand gets busier throughout the rest of the season, from November right through to May.
