Kasikorn Bank uses TFN05027 - 05032 as its "International Transction" (sic) code:

That list is exactly what Ive been searching for ... for many days.

 

Thanks for posting.  My account book's list and other posted lists not include all the international codes. Gonna print this and take to immigration when renewing. Sorted .. errrrrrr I think. 

 

No idea why all the posts that you gotta move to Bangkok Bank and use TW. Spooked me.

 

Soon immigration will be experts on bank transaction codes but nice to have it printed out.

 

I suspect all the codes will show on internet banking which Ive just applied for today but this list good info. 

 

I wont get 12 inward monthly payments in but they have been ordered to be lenient the first year and accept fewer imports.  I must print put BJs letter that says allowances be made. Previously I did 2 or 3 large transfers in a year.

 

What a performance. 800k route as a plan B hopefully not needed after first year if it all ok.

The list I pasted came from a pdf that K-bank sent me when I requested a statement using their app.  I've attached the full pdf here.

Wow. Ballpoint. Your a star.

 

Many thanks

 

I will put PDF on my phone to flash under Immigration Officers nose if needed.

 

Im sorted .. providing rules not change again. The 4 countries citizens needing to show 65k or more income from abroad a big contrast to ALL the rest proving income that need not come anywhere near Thailand .......a HUGE difference in fact.

 

.... never been discrimated against before 😎😎😎😎

My TW transfers to Kasikorn only show as 05027 (International Transaction) when they use Kasikorn as their local banking partner (as shown on the TW receipt pdf).

If they use BBL then it gets coded as 07416 (Stock Trading) or more recently 07206 (Receive Other Transfer).

I have no idea but now I got all the codes meanings  .. I can see ALL my internet requested transfers over the past 2 or 3 years show very clearly they from my UK bank. Well to be acurate .. thats its an international transfer ... Probably also before that but old bank books destroyed.

 

Phew .. all good. I can stick with Kasikorn.

 

I always send in pounds not let Lloyds do the exchange .. They always give 2 auto warnings I will lose money and create a delay.  BS .. they want to make money on the exchange rate.  Banks suck.

 

It might be if sending in baht it not get TFN code ... pounds arriving down them wires to be exchanged gonna generate some different code. 😎😎😎

Go to Kasikorn Bank and ask for a “Credit Advice” on one of these transactions... If the sender is listed as TransferWise (albeit from a local account) along with your TW receipt from the same day showing the funds originating from abroad together should be sufficient proof of foreign transfer... Please post a post a copy of your credit advice here as it would help us all know if this option is viable...

Its argueably now more adviseable to keep a close track of bank account(s).  Getting passbook updates not always convenient.

 

For Info ...

 

Kasikorns Cyber (online banking) site does NOT seem to like Android default browser (Chrome). I have found many sites dont work with Chrome. Including some features on my English bank site.

 

But I still persevered struggling to get it to accept my new user name and password. After 2 hours and phone calls to Kbank I remembered. Durrrrrrrr ! tooo many beers over the years. 😶

 

Had to download and use a different browser. I downloaded Firefox and it works a treat.

 

Errrrrrrr except Firefox has very annoying features. I.e Its possible to download your account history for offline use/printing. But when I try to do that .. Firefox asks for permission to access my photos and files. What the Ferk !!!!! WHY !!!!!!!!

 

I say NO .. and the download wont occur. I got rid of Firefox before because of this VERY annoying feature. So no printout possible with my set up .. so passbook only printed record.  

 

I might have to dust off my crappy old Windows laptop to get a print out if I feel the need. The internet bank shows in lovely big bold letters in full International Transation Deposit. But IOs will know the codes in passbook very soon.

 

So dont struggle with Kbank with Chrome ... in my experience it wont work.

Both my Apple Mac and IPad access Kasikorns website fine via Safari... The App seemed to only allow one device (preferably your phone which you must ink the phone number to at an ATM)...

Thanks for info.  

 

The problem is with Samsung's / Android "Chrome" default browser.  Amazing really as its so widely used.  Before I knew ... I once spent days trying to buy tickets for an event in Dubai. Many phone calls got me no where. Online purchase only.  On the 4th phone call the girl told me .. their system wont work with Android default browser.
