Re: International Joint Account Banking Suggestion?

Looking for an international online bank account that will allow my Thai wife to be a joint account holder as a Thai citizen. All except Barclays wants the joint account holder to be a citizen where the bank is located or to come into the office. Neither is possible. With Barclays, I can't meet the...

Re: International Joint Account Banking Suggestion?

Citibank in Bangkok could not help with the joint International account for foreign currency. Their regulations require that both account holders have the same country of citizenship. There was no problem other than that.

Thanks for all of the help.

I will keep looking.

Re: International Joint Account Banking Suggestion?

Shared account is simply that can be used by either party and if one party dies the other party has full access. No one can freeze the assets in that account but single named account would of course be frozen if the bank knew the holder has passed on. The laws are of course different for each count...

Re: International Joint Account Banking Suggestion?

Thanks for all the tips.

I am looking for a joint account situation so that she does not have to rely on my will when I pass on. No other reason.

After going through some chat with HSBC, they can't oblige.

I'll look at some of the other suggestions above. Thanks!

Re: International Joint Account Banking Suggestion?

Maybe I was looking at the wrong web site, but HSBC required a US ID. That was one of the first places I went.

SCB bank letter and passbook update issue

Extension of stay granted, but there was a difference in the passbook date and the confirmation letter. When SCB updated the passbook, it reflected the date of the last transaction. It was not the same date as the letter. The balances on the letter and passbook were identical. I was forced to return...

Not racist, and I don't care very much what they do. Like someone else said, just panty bunchers.

Re: Udon Immigration office lately

The foreigner herd is being thinned by several factors. Very well could lead to fewer efforts by the Thai government to put more burdens upon us.
