Re: Bangkok Bank Direct Deposits

Peter, do you know how that is coded? In other words would immigration accept it as foreign. I got a bit of a screwing from TransferWise yesterday as the transfer showed interbank not FTT. How about fees and exchange rate, any way of finding out? I would hope it would be at least the mid rate, not ...

Re: Bangkok Bank Direct Deposits

main branch BangkokBank Prajak Rd. Upstairs at foreign transaction counter. Use your US debit card to bring over monthly funds to your bank account and ask for the FTT code to show in your book. Been doing that for a few months now FTT stands for Foreign Telegraphic Transfer if you are doing the tr...

Bangkok Bank Direct Deposits

Those with Direct Deposits from the US Treasury ie Military, VA etc due on the 1st. In the past the Bank would not post when the first is a holiday. That has now been changed your money will be deposited even if it is a holiday here. I hope they have learned and continue to do this.

Service Connected/Retired US Veterans

Re: U.S. Embassy to stop providing income letters Jan 01, 2019

I believe this will happen to all Embassy's. My Wife's Uncle is a Government Official and it might appear that in some cases individuals did not have the income as certified and problems occurred when they got sick. No Medical Insurance and no money to pay the Hospital and this was in all probabilit...

So how long have you been waiting?
My deposit is normally in my account around 9AM on the 1st. As of this posting it is still not in my account and I have verified the Direct Deposit was made by the US Treasury to Bangkok Bank and submitted this documented proof to Bangkok Bank.
