5 years ago, I went to the headquarter of Bangkok Bank in Silom, told them I need a saving acct and they requested a perm address in Thailand only. I passed the money for deposit and few mins later, I was given a debit card with ATM features and a saving book. Didn't know it is so troublesome now.

Talking Re: Living in Bangkok!

Naemlo,

Me too, about 2008, I opened a savings account with Siam Commercial Bank and I used my friend's address. Currently, you need a work permit or owned a property in Thailand!

I have Zen MP3 player with 12 Thai Language CDs, so that's how I'm going to start learning Thais for several months! By July, I will be attending one of the language schools in Bangkok.

Re: Living in Bangkok!

Haven't made a post for quite a while. Happy Lunar New Year and congratulations to Bro Norice.

I have a few Thai bank accounts but my first one, in 2007, was made using company employment contract. I didn't had the work permit yet at that time. I showed it to the officer and she went off talking to 1 or 2 of her colleagues before she oked my application.

Makes me wonder if you can ask some friends for favor and type a employment offer contract, using their company letterhead and convince the bank you are getting your work permit soon. But once you opened the account, they never bother to check anyway.

Talking Re: Living in Bangkok!

Khunsanook,

Once again you're correct, once you open an account, the bank's management will not bother you! The problem is to be in compliance with their policies of opening an initial account. I guess the problem lies with money laundering and terrorism. I don't know, that's my guess!

So troublesome to open bank account now. Things were so much simpler about 20 years ago. I had an account with Bangkok Bank in McCallum street then. When I asked the manager about opening account in Thailand, he gave me an intro letter and when I was in Hatyai I handed over the letter and my money to the bank. Fifteen minutes later I left the bank with my new account, atm card and bankbook.

hello brudder you damn talk cock lah!

i can still understand if you say 2 years ago Thai bank policies are like this or like that.

your comparison to 20 years ago is a little too far fetched man! 20 years ago MediaCorp is still known as SBC leh!

Re: Living in Bangkok!

Happy Lunar new year to all bros here..

Am not as familiar with Bkk as I am with Chiang Mai, but I presume the bank policies would apply throughout all Thailand.

I opened my bank account middle last year, at K bank, or Kasikorn bank (without a work permit). The only document needed was my passport. Was told thereafter by a local friend that only K bank offers this for foreigners without a resident permit (Note: I haven't authenticated this claim).

For me currently transfering funds has alway been easy through my citi account in Sgp, footing only the currency exchange fees. Am still on the lookout for cheaper alternatives.. cheers!
