(My mistake, correct salary is 200 000บ/month Document here (Thai language): https://www.boi.go.th/upload/smart%20visa%20details_Thai_25Jan%202018_51278.pdf)
Thailand has a "smart visa" for high-skilled foreign workers in engineering, IT, Ph.D, etc, but requires the a 200 000บ/month salary. But the average salary in Thailand is only 15 000บ/month salary. Very few jobs in technology in Thailand pay a salary high enough for this visa (very few government jobs in Thailand pay over 200 000บ/month). Is this visa just for show, so the government can say it is like Japan or Taiwan (soon South Korea) when the government knows very few people can get it?
Compared with other country in region:
Japan (Nippon) has a similar "Highly Skilled Foreign Professional" visa with no minimum salary requirement, but higher salaries get more points for the visa. The average salary in Japan is about 305 000円/month (≈85 000บ/month).
Taiwan has the Plum Blossom Card (梅花卡), which has no minimum salary requirement but has a minimum for all type work visa of about 48 000元/month (≈48 000บ/month). The average salary in Taiwan is about 50 000元/month (≈50 000บ/month).
