    I could today send 40,000 to my Thai account, and maybe pull it out of an ATM in the UK ( not sure about daily withdrawal limits).
    That might work, with some fees and stuff taken off.
    But it's not ideal, because the point is to move money around wherever as and when you want, from online.
    If I could have a GBP/THB account in a Thai bank with user-friendly t&c's, and a decent app, might be ok.
    Thailand is seeming more like Tiresomeland for all this pointless bureaucrap and archaic banking stuff, but obviously, most of SEAsia is like this, some of it even more of a chew.

    Similar to the ATM card, your wife could get a Thai credit card which can be used in UK; but that also incurs extortionate exchange rates.

    Or bitcoin.

    I'm starting to think I may as well hook up with a bird in a cheaper country with less bureaucracy.

    When I was in the PI, I hit up the ATM for 15K pesos (10K thb) with a 250 peso charge.

    No problem.

    A guy who hasn't figured out how to transact money internationally after 8 years is probably not much of a catch.

    Yeah, my Thai card works fine in UK cash machines, and no charge, so given my shift pattern, that seems the simplest way to put the spondies back into the UK account, just have to tolerate shit rates until TransferWise can add baht local accounts to their repertoire.

    My wife and I have separate SCB accounts. On the app, you can do international transfers.

    The only catch is that it is for Thai nationals only.

    I transfer the money to her and then she transfers the money to England. Really easy process and you can do it all on your phone.
    Black diamonds? I shit 'em.

    It's funny Nemo an admitted Trumptard does not have a clue. But the Libtards can do it easily and cheaply from their phones. Quite telling.

    (1) Open SCP app
    (2) Choose the 'International Transfer' icon
    (3) Complete the fields for the recipient (amount, name, bank name, account number, sort code, recipient's address.)
    (4) Press send.

    Says it can take up to 2 business days for the money to be in bank. When I did it, it took exactly 15 minutes.
    The app does not charge you a fee and also doesn't rip you off on the exchange rate. The converted amount received is shown before sending it.

    You're not alone waiting, though I can't see TW exporting baht from Thailand while the country is ruled by paranoid control freaks. But could work by offering a share of the profits.

    How many transfers have you made in the eight years since starting this thread?

    Gentlemen, I think the good member is looking for advice on how to send,so rather than derailing another thread, wouldn't it be more helpful to others who may wish to know the same information, to give your expert advice on such matters.

    Unfortunately he isn't / wasn't and instead elected to be rather priggish about it and start calling people "window-lickers".

    Sad.

    Sounds good.
    As I've already explained a couple of times, the BKK bank apps that we have don't let us do that.
    I can't get an SCB or a new Kasikorn (I had one before without any problem, but it's long gone, and they won't give a new one without a work permit).

    Maybe there are some branches that give accounts out without work permits, I could only get a joint one which won't let me use the app.

    So, when you read the thread earlier, which bits actually went in? Or are you now parroting Gollum?

    You missed step 0. Get an account, which you can't do if you're not a pensioner and not on a work permit.

    I have actually written this earlier on this thread.

    ...yeah, but the desperate need for attention, and obsessive stalking across threads to try and redress the aching butthurt is overwhelming for Golkum. ...don't feed the pigeons, they're only purpose is to leave a mess, and trash threads, by pretending to make meaningful contributions, whilst clearly not doing that and simply trying to get some attention, and destroy what's left of the forum.

    And it's actually incorrect.

    It is entirely possible to get a Thai bank account without a WP but, as per, I'm pretty sure you aren't actually interested in hearing anything that doesn't match your preconceptions -- which is why 8 yrs later you still haven't managed to sort it out, instead choosing to be an arrogant and abusive wanker as is your want.
