800k in fixed term deposit for extension based on retirement


Recommended Posts

Use the yellow bank Krungsri. I opened with them when i arrived 15 years ago. I use my 800000 bath for my retirement visa and they block 600000 of it so i also have a c card for 500000 baht. I have never worked here. They also allow 2 atm cards on one account at last, that was about 3 years ago. They are the biggest bank.

No need for a ATM card anymore, "cardless withdrawals" work fine using my phone. I just have a passbook

Bangkok Bank is the easiest to open. Just find one where there are lots of foreigners and they will be more than happy to open for you.

 

SCB is the most difficult bank.

Do cardless withdrawal need an internet connection on the phone?

 

Not everybody subscribe to internet connection on the phone.

1200 baht per year is not cheap and it's only used for withdrawing money.

 

I have internet connection at home, and it's enough.

Then you need an ATM card, many people have smartphones these days with data
