From 16 August 2010, all foreign members of media applying for media accreditation to work/reside in Thailand or to renew their visa, work permit and press card, have to submit their applications through the MFA Media Online Service (MMOS) website.
The MMOS is a system developed by the Foreign Ministry to support the following services to members of media:
1. Online media registration for important meetings, conferences and other events hosted by the Foreign Ministry for both Thai and foreign media based in Thailand who wish to cover such events.
2. Online accreditation service for foreign members of media intending to work or reside in the Kingdom as well as for the annual renewal of the media accreditation to obtain extension for visa, work permit and press card.
3. E-newsletter service for updated news from the Foreign Ministry.
