Alcohol & Cigarette Licence

Alcohol and cigarette licences are cheap and easily available from your local City Hall if you are only providing mini-bar type service in your rental accommodation.

If you are running a guesthouse with restaurant facilities, bar serving food or other business selling alcohol to the public you will need to submit more documents and your premises will be due an inspection.

Alcohol License

If you will be selling alcohol in your restaurant or bar, we can also assist you in applying for the retail license to sell alcoholic beverages. This license application requires some government forms, company papers less than 3 months old, building approval and related documents from the legal owner of the property. The authorised Company Director’s passport or Thai ID copy. Your licence can be obtained from the Excise Licence office located in the district where you are located or your City Hall.

However, it should be noted that the location of the restaurant/bar (selling alcohol) should not be in close proximity to a school, temple, hospital, etc., and the officials may request to drop by the premises for an inspection before issuing the alcohol license.
