Am I required to close my thai bank account after my work permit ends.

Not possible with KTB to receive the code only with postpaid DTAC

That sounds strange, as I not believe the bank can know if you have post or prepaid… you sure you have activated the roaming?

Yes, you must be reachable without country code, this is what I was told by my bank

Yes, that's the reason why you can't use a foreign mobile as for a foreign one you need to put the country code. But for a Thai mobile the country code is only needed if you want try to call from a non Thai network. So therefore I still would assume also prepaid should work too.

 

At least for Kasikornbank it will work 100%.

Close the account (or not), but take ALL your money and move it out of the reach of the thai's, manage your money-dont let the leeches do it for you!

If the phone is turned on with roaming enabled it can be reachable outside Thailand. I usually swap my Thai and UK SIMs around when I travel to UK and keep an extra old phone. (A dual SIM phone would be an idea I know). When I am expecting some PIN, or OTPW from Thailand so I can do something online from the laptop I turn it on and the SMS reaches me fine. It appears to be free too.
