How can I open a bank account in Thailand?
If you are planning to relocate to Thailand permanently, it is useful to have a Thai bank account.
Opening a bank account as a foreigner in Thailand is certainly possible, but it may seem confusing at first.
Team ILBE.BE will guide you on what you need to know about opening a bank account in Thailand.
Each bank has its own rules, so it can vary greatly from bank to bank when it comes to opening bank accounts for foreigners. Most rules depend on bank employees and branch managers. Procedures also differ.
To get a bank account, you must have documents such as:
• Announcements or letter from your current bank to the specific Thai bank
• ID or passport
• A Thai house registration or letter from a landlord
• A work visa or letter confirming that you are eligible for a work visa
• A tourist or student visa
ILBE.BE advises you to bring more documents than necessary. This helps you to avoid problems and gets the bank account and starts the business as quickly as possible.
For example, if the branch asks you for a different bank statement or bill, you must bring different accounts from different companies and bank statements from more than one bank. If they ask for a photo ID, also bring your passport and driver's license, and any other documents that may have your photo ID.
