The Amity treaty between the United States and Thailand allows US citizens with equal business and personal rights as those of Thai citizens and vice versa. The US-Thailand Amity treaty allows U.S. citizens to invest in many business sectors without i) a foreign business license and ii) without a Thai shareholder and director. However, the minimum share capital of the Thai company must be US$63,000;
There are only seven business activities that American businesses are restricted from including i) real estate activities ii) communications iii) transportation iv) fiduciary functions v) banking vi) exploitation of land and natural resources vii) domestic trade in indigenous agricultural products;
Multinationals can enjoy Amity treaty benefits when American citizens hold a majority of the company shares and directorships.
