Are you planning to import your favourite alcoholic beverage for commercial purposes, or intending to supply wines from abroad to wholesalers in Thailand? Let us help you to apply for the appropriate licenses. The process may seem lengthy, but below we break down the steps for you in order to provide a clear understanding of the requirements.
You should start by searching for a storage space to store the alcohol that you will be importing, and obtain documents from the legal owner to evidence ownership and consent to use the business address once the rent is finalised. We would start the process by applying for a license to sell the imported alcohol, in wholesale and/or retail.
A sample label should be prepared which must be in Thai language and include details such as the name of product, degree of alcohol and volume of the bottle. The label must also contain a general warning statement for alcohol consumption. Once the sample is approved by the officials, you should have the labels printed to be attached as stickers on the alcohol bottles.
