I have read that it is important to have your original degree certificate when applying for jobs, is this true? A photocopy is not sufficient?

Unless it's apostilled how are they to know if the copy is the copy of a real degree. Thailand is rife with fake documents, even an apostilled document might not be enough for them. You probably would be better off to just obtain a couple more degree certificates from the Registrar at your university.

Its not just that it is important, it is that it is almost always required by the Ministry of Ed, TTC and/or Min of Labor (cant remember exactly which place asks for it). You should also have sealed/stamped copies of original transcripts. An official degree confirmation letter from your Uni stated degree earned and date is also recommended.

Thailand is not a member of the Apostille convention, so an apostilled document will most likely mean little to them.

Most universities will supply all of these documents for a price. Even extra degree certificates (these can be costly though).
