Do Thai banks in Nakon bumfuk have sort codes??
Trying to transfer a bit of cash, got all details apart from sort code wifes sister (who is thick as fok) says bank doesn't have a sort code, so got the wife to phone the bank direct and they keep saying you don't need the sort code it's just the swift code you need. She replies yes thank you very much for the swift code which i already have but can you please just give me the sort code aswell. NO HAB is constant reply. Even got her to phone the head office and same sh1t, now i know my Thai bank accounts have a sort code, so basically transferring money to a bank in a nakon bumfuk do i need the sort code or not as i thought i did and am guessing my bank here in the UK will need it to do the transfer and also i was under the impression every bank in the world had a sort code so it could be located. Fully appreciate i could be totally wrong and that a bank in nakon bumfok could be the first bank i've come across anywhere in the world without a sort code.

Yep, Tetters is right. SWIFT Code, account number (BSB technically- bank & savings branch), and account name also. Not technically required, but a good idea to give the bank name & branch too. Some forms ask for the address, but I just ignore it, or give the town name again.

All transactions will go through the main BKK branch first [of whatever respective Thai bank]....there is a singular swift code for that bank.

Sort Code - route money transfers between banks within their respective countries
The British and Irish sort codes are only used for domestic money transfers

SWIFT/BIC identifies the bank internationally.
The account number will be in the format 123-456789-0. The 123 is the branch number (the equivalent to the UK sort code) and the rest is your personal account number.
The USA uses routing numbers instead of sort codes
Europe has the IBAN system
DWP need the SWIFT code and your full account number...and NO they are not very clued up.
I see fish. They are everywhere. They don't know they are fish.
