Registering a s alocal entity, normally in the form of a foundation may make obtaining work permits, doing banking and dealing with Thailand government officials more convenient.

There are many volunteering opportunities available in Bangkok: from social issues, to environmental issues, to health care issues, to minority rights, to human rights.  However foreign NGO are normally prohibited from engaging in political acitivites and other areas.
