Newbie Q & A Getting settled in KKC / Re: TransferWise
« on: January 18, 2019, 09:48:52 AM »

I've heard is the best , especially if you buy cryptocurrencies, the money of the future, and travel a lot.

Last Friday my wife and I were in town so we popped over to the driving license centre to ask.  The very first thing he mentioned was a medical form which even their own website says is not necessary for a 5 year to 5 year renewal.  No consistency, rules made up on the spot.  We are going tomorrow and I'll report back.

Both my wife and I did it last month, no medical needed.

That stupid non-Thai pink is not accepted as proof of address.

A medical is no longer required.

I went to CENTRAL PLAZA and took my wife's english speaking nephew and of course my wife who has a bank account with bangkok bank. i thought it would be good planning for me to open one, for several reasons:


Do you speak to your wife in English or Thai?

I have had a Bangkok Bank account, Na Muang Branch, Khon Kaen for I guess more than 10 years.  I don't use it for reasons I have ranted about several times on this forum.  Now I have another reason:

Got a notice my debit card was about to expire.  I happened to be a Central Plaza and it was convenient to stop by the branch and get a new card.  Waited 20 minutes or so, got to the counter and everything appeared to be routine . .. until she explained that they could not issue a new card at that branch because I have a new passport with a new passport number, and therefore I have to go to the branch to get the new debit card.

Gawd knows what torture the branch will put me through because I have a new passport.

Meditate before I go to the branch tomorrow.

Even with an old passport, another branch can't issue you a new card.

I've been with Bangkok bank for 14 years and they still won't give me a credit card, despite earning more than the 80k they ask for.

I can;t wait til the day, hopefully in a year or so when I go in as a Thai citizen to ask for one.

Tks Frank.

Yeah, BKK, at least Na Muang,  regards me as a "tourist."  The either do not understand the concept of a retirement visa or they don't or won't be moved off of their narrow interpretation.  This is nothing new.  Same story as 12 years ago when I opened the account.

As I said, I had no expectations and was just playing around because the new ATM card went so smoothly and there was no one in the bank at the time.  No biggie.  I just keep a little "mad money" in the bank for no particular reason that I can think of.  Kasikorn has always been pleasant, accommodating, helpful and quick.

Do you get  any interest from either of these banks as a tourist?

What's the best bank in KK to get a CC?

I've worked here for over two decades and get over 1 million baht a year salary.

So why would I want to get a loan or a mortgage when my wife gets Thai rates, etc., which we farangs are not eligible.

We are eligible.

Once they know you,, and not your representative, you know it is a real commitment when a senior Immigration Officer says to you, "Come see me, if you have any type of problem.  I will assist you."  AND he doesn't ask for any tip!
How can you be so naive?

Read the 190 comments and then give your opinion.

The army cracked down on immigration and punished them by making them sit outside during the hottest month of the year. Some have been transferred too. KK Immigration was really taking the p!ss with their bribes.
4 years in power, the one good thing they have done is stop corruption in the police and government.
This is one of the worst, loss of face punishments in Thailand.

Silliness!  A mortgage for what, a condo? As I think about it, that might actually be a real benefit for some falang who might like to own a condo but can't pay cash.

As to the TM30, presumably as the owner, you would have to fill out a TM30 to report that a foreigner was staying in your home!  And also a TM28 to report that you, a foreigner, have traveled away form home.   roll

Although we might (want to) assume that PR would relieve you of the TM30-TM28 obligation, I have not see it explicitly so stated anywhere.

Do you not know that a foreigner can get a mortgage for a house. It is just a bank loan.
