ThaiVisa noted, “Although many feared that applications for the 2014 quotas had been shelved completely, as happened in 2010, it turns out that the government was just too busy to prepare to open for applications in December, as is normally the case.

“According to the announcement in the Royal Gazette, these are clearly the 2014 quotas, so Immigration should open again for applications in December this year.”

The application process is explained here.
