  1. Bank of Bangkok (BB) website sets the criteria below to be filled before an account may be opened. Have any BM's opened BB accounts since the kerfuffle about income certification erupted and, if so, what documents did the branch they approached ask for/accept? Many thanks in advance for replies. Required Documents 2. Foreigner without work permit Passport A reference letter issued by one of the following institutes or organizations or required document Embassy located in Thailand An overseas bank where the customer holds an account sent via SWIFT Trusted individuals such as a Bangkok Bank staff member or customer, director of a private company, permanent residence in Thailand, government or private educational institutes located in Thailand trusted by the Bank Trusted companies, e.g., an employment letter from the company if the customer is in the process of applying for a work permit. Document showing ownership of a fixed asset such as a condominium sale/purchase agreement (a condominium which is acceptable to Bangkok Bank) Or a property reservation agreement valued at 100,000 baht or more with a reference letter from the property developer that is acceptable to Bangkok Bank. Notes: Contact addresses for both Thailand and overseas must be provided (hotel and P.O. Box addresses are not acceptable).
  2. Yes - posted my experience in post #24 in the Yellow House-Book thread (28 December).
  3. Just obtained my Thai ID card from Lampang Municipal Office. Easy business: Documents Required: Passport and Yellow House-Book, with copies of the ID pages in each A few simple questions (including blood group!). Photograph and thumbprints taken, all done in under half an hour. No queue before being attended to. Polite and good-humoured service throughout. Onwards to opening a bank account .... (I'll post in the banking forum about that).
