Rex, on taking longer with the manual intervention on TransferWise transfers, here is what I wrote in this thread earlier,

At 2100 hours, on the 5th of August, I initiated a transfer request.  As I had stated before as soon as I requested, I contacted TransferWise to make sure they would do the transfer by their manual means, really did not care if it took 2 or 3 or 4 days longer.Well, here it is, I received notification from BBL that xx.xx bahts were deposited into my account from abroad.  Time, 14:03 on the 7th of August (1 day and 17 hours later.)   Less than 2 days.  What a relief!  Hope it'll be the same on the next transfers too.

That is the same amount of time as when I was doing transfers prior to the issue of transfers coming through as domestic transfers.

But be what it may,  not sure why one doesn't do a transfer request on the 1st of the month so it arrives  within a few days and then, if you want to do another, why not do it in the middle of the month like around the 15th?  So if the 2nd transfer take 7 days, it'll still get to your Thai bank by the 22nd!!

Seems like a simple strategy, do one on the 1st and a 2nd on the 15th!

Just some bits & bobs:


One guy on ThaiVisa sez 

"Also i do not spend all 12 months a year in Thailand and having to send money when your not there is insane."

Never thought of that.  Could you imagine being only part of the year but still having to import funds?
