Recommended Posts

can I open a bank account just as a tourist? (without visa, just the 30 days visa free).

I had heard that this was possible at Bangkok bank. or am I wrong ?

There is a number of threads on same subject and appears it (almost) impossible

Some times it is possible, most times it is not.... I managed to open one at Kasekorn bank, with a letter from immigration confirming my address along with my passport.... but rules change more often then a Pattaya bargirl pulls up her panties... I doubt the rules are the same now

I did it earlier on in the year with Bangkok Bank , used Tik Tok services ( cost THB 3.5k iirc ) https://tiktokservicesthailand.com

- now can easily transfer funds whenever I want using TransferWise app on my phone

If it floats, flies or fucks It's probably cheaper to rent ...

I dealt with them via messenger, they needed some details from me , Thai telephone number and a passport picture and pictures of my passport and stamp , then the next day they picked me up at my hotel took me to the Bank , I signed the paperwork , deposited some money , tried out the ATM , downloaded the Bangkok Bank app , then then took me back to the hotel .. took about an hour and was all included in the fee

Owning a Thai bank account offers so many benefits! you no longer need to take cash with you, no longer withdraw money with your credit card, which is expensive ... and you simply deposit the money you need on your leave on your Thai account for your leave. super handy anyway

I have heard that your bank sometimes tries to sell insurance ... are you obliged to take it? did you pay extra for insurance and if so, what were these?

Download the TransferWise app as well , you can transfer whenever you wish , takes 24 hours and costs £9.97 to send £1000

Tik Tok is telling me 3500 plus 1500 to the bank, 500 of which is a deposit.

I opened an account at Kasikorn Bank this trip but I did have a 12 month Retirement Visa.

Yes you are correct - was 1000 for Internet Banking and ATM card  - so total 4,500 Baht 

was happy to get the account open , I had tried three Banks before but all rejected me with the 30 day stamp

Appreciate all threads/details on this and thinking that need to get this done next trip.  I am considering bringing initial deposit over in Cdn cash - Ie just under $10k USD equivalent.   Will bank accept/give reasonable exchange on this or does a person need to search other money-exchange options first?  Am sure somebody has figured this out, but how much money do you need to spend in Thailand to cover the initial costs of setting up Thai bank account - I would be going with service like described above for about 4500b.   Believe I had heard that exchange rate better relative to foreign ATM exchange rates, but would be good to put a figure on this.

No need to bring that much cash over , just use something like TransferWise to send money over once you open your account ..... if you really want to bring cash then I would compare the Bank rates  with TT booths first , you can always convert with TT then deposit the Thai cash into your account

Sorry, as maybe left out some important details.  I have non-US cash - ie cdn bank accounts - that would be transferring from .  Guess what I am after is if there is a cross-currency exchange type difference.  It seems like you may be able to get a better Cdn $-thai baht direct exchange from money exchange booths than using a service like Transfer-wise?  Maybe I do not understand transfer-wise well enough - seems to be sign in info required that would like to avoid if somebody here already knows.  Agree that would be much handier than baby-sitting cash through about 3days.

Currently

https://transferwise.com/gb/currency-converter/cad-to-thb-rate

TT will be about 22.75

Bangkok Bank 22.41

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
