Get a job before you arrive and employer will sort nearly everything out for you.

You don't choose a visa for work.

You FIND a job, the employer gives you paperwork them you go to a Thai consulate nearby and BUY the Non-B visa <- the B means business You should look into getting a 6 month METV <- multi-entry tourist visa from the thai consulate in your country BEFORE you come here. That would give you almost 9 months of stay (in 60 day increments) which is plenty of time to find a job.

If you don't have a degree its pretty hard to get a NON b, unless you're a specialist in the field.

People are not handing out visas for backpackers serving beers in hostels.

If you are high qualified and you are working in special niches (best promoted by the BOI) then the chances are okay, otherwise..... stay away.

If you don't have a job, then you can't get the right visa for work.

Options are: 1) line up a job and start the process before you arrive.

2) come on a tourist visa while you're job hunting.

Then once you get a job you will have to leave the country to get a new visa.

TEFL for you kids. If you want to be an English Teacher should have degree or certification, etc for you to teach.

But please don't come here trying to find your luck without experience or skills at all, it will be so hard.

Try to look online before coming here. Like this site https://www.jobsdb.co.th and see where you fit in.

60 day tourist visa from your home country, this will give you up to 4 months here (visa,extension,1 border run).

Nothing is impossible but if you are looking for teaching work it is becoming increasingly more difficult, to get a work permit you will probably need a degree, because you are not a native English speaker some labor departments will require a TOEIC score.

September is also not the best time to be searching for teaching positions it's mid way through the school year.
