I have received my money, but the withdrawal doesn't show up on my USAA account for a couple of days after. Not sure why.

The biographical page means the page where it has your name, photo, passport/travel document no., issue date and expiration date. Provide photocopies of the biographical pages of your current passport and/or travel document. Also, provide photocopies of any renewal pages of the passport(s)/travel document(s).

Yes, I guess I left that part out. Sorry. But I figured you would get all the info off of their website. I'm not a salesman for Transferwise. 😁
They told me it would take a few days too. But in reality, it only took about one hour.

Some banks, yes. But mostly when transferring through investment firms.
ie; Fidelity.

When using Transferwise I send the funds to KTB bank. That's the only account solely in my name. The BBL accounts, one is in my wife's name and the other is a joint account. Just in case I have to show bank deposits in my name only, I am sending to KTB.
 So, to answer your question. No, my bank doesn't charge me anything. They are actually receiving funds from BKK bank inside Thailand. Transferwise gives you a complete printout of your transaction showing which bank the funds came from. In the U.S.
 So, I am hoping with the printout and the bankbook showing the corresponding deposits, that will be sufficient for immigration.


For those that USAA bank this might help.

Visas, et al / Re: 90 Day Report
« on: October 26, 2018, 08:43:40 AM »
So let me get this straight.
 Someone comes here on a multi-entry OA visa. Leaves the country every 90 days and walks back in. Does this for a year and if they do it right can actually get two years out of it.
 Never has to report to immigration and can go where they want and live where they want. After two years, leave and get a new OA nonimmigrant visa and do the whole thing all over again.
 Where is the logic in that?
 But as soon as you apply for an extension of stay all the BS kicks in.

I have now used Transferwise two times. It appears that they use Wells Fargo Bank in the states and Bangkok Bank in Thailand.
 Frank, please keep us informed of any information updates from Transferwise and others.  Thanks.

Makes me wonder why a Swift transfer
doesn't need to meet any of these qualifications.

No I did not talk to them personally. Looking at their international transfer choices, they listed Swift at $20.00 per transaction.  Plus you would have to pay the bank fees on this end too.
 But USAA is claiming to be on top of this. Will have to give them a call to make sure.

US ACH transfers will fail as of April 1, 2019. Will USAA upgrade before that date?moctezuma1moctezuma


I currently have established a monthly automatic US ACH transfer from USAA bank to Bangkok Bank’s New York branch. Effective April 1, 2019, Bangkok Bank will no longer accept US ACH transfers, and will require all transfers to be in the “International ACH Transaction” (IAT) format, in accordance with new rules imposed by NACHA (Electronic Payments Association).
In accordance with the new rules, will USAA implement the required IAT transfer protocol for online transfer requests by April 1, 2019?

    Hello and thank you so much for your inquiry. USAA is already in compliance to process International ACH Transactions (IAT) as it relates to OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control) related concerns. Thank you!

  • moctezuma1

    Thank you so much for your reply.  Does your reply mean that my current automatic transfers are in IAT format, and I do not have to specifically request that format when I establish a transfer request?

    Thank you for your follow-up inquiry. To ensure we can set proper expectations for your inquiry we will need to speak with you. At your earliest convenience please contact us at 210-531-USAA (8722), our mobile shortcut #8722 or 800-531-8722. Our business hours are Monday through Friday 5:00am-12:00 am CT and Saturday 6:00am - 10:00pm CT, or Sunday 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. CT. We look forward to speaking with you!

you are right. I kind of left you hanging on this one. Basically, It cost me $19.00 and some change to transfer $2100.00. That might seem a little high. But, I got a better exchange rate than BKK bank was giving me.
Also, if you are happy about the exchange rate you are getting from Transferwise, it is locked in once you tell them to transfer. So even if the rate goes down in the 1-2 days it takes to receive your funds. You are locked in on the rate you agreed to.
 I normally bank with USAA in the states and transfer between them and BKK bank NY. But, USAA does not do set up IAH transfers as most U.S. banks do not.
Hopefully this helps a little more. I too am just learning. At least we have plenty of notice until 1 April.

 KrungThai Bank did not charge anything for the deposit. I guess they were happy to get it.  Another good thing. I don't have to deal with BKK bank next year. They can stuff that Union Pay Card.
