BKK bank debit card 6 digit PIN number and foreign travel

Recommended Posts

BKK bank has changed it's debit card company from visa to MasterCard the new card uses a 6 digit pin, the old Visa card was 4.  This presents a problem as pretty much ALL Mexican aims use 4 digits.  The I asked about this at my local BKK branch I got that familiar blank smile and .."it is good worldwide" end of discussion. anyone have experience' advice on this matter?

I traveled to Cambodia with a card like that about a year ago.

Over there, in Phnom Penh, it seems maybe every 2nd ATM accepted them.

 

The good news for you and others is that this just requires a software update on the ATM machines, no hardware update. So it is relative simple to implement. But I have no information on actual numbers in any country.

When I received my6 pin card from Kasikorn , I contacted my European bank (not U.K.) to ask if the ATM accepted 4 or 6 pin , the answer was that any ATM from Europe system recognize if it is a 4 or 6 pin , so no problem ,

 

Second question  was from me about which limit is accepted, te Thai bank one or the European one ? Answer was not sure ,as it depend or from ATM machine , or from E.U. Bank, or from the Atos or ATM system provider ….

But from Mexico you can cross through the open border to the US where 6 digit ATMs are widely available, generally right next to a weed vending machine, which also accepts debit cards...

I can confirm that BKK bank ATM cards with 6 digit pin work well in the UK, and Western Europe.
Easy peezy - just like the old 4 digit pin card.

Krungthai deposit account cards also - just enter the full 6 digit pin.

When renewing my card in Bangkok Bank they gave me a Union Pay card with 6 digit. This is in Khon Kaen and card-machine in shops in Khon Kaen did not accept the card. I went to the bank and insisted on a Visa card, which they have, but not use. I was lucky to get this card, but other have problem to get Visa card. Union Pay is, after what i have been told, a chinese company. So this is probable part of China takeover Thailand.

Been discussed many times, EU countries including the UK, all ATM's require a 4 digit number. 6 digit numbers do not work.
Well the six digit pin on my Kasikorn debit card worked fine at ATM’s and pos terminal’s in the UK, Netherlands, France, Italy and Turkey this year and last.

I went to Vietnam and the ATMs there would only give me a max of a thousand baht a day in dong.....it wouldn't pay for much of anything with four of us. Make sure they increase your minimum before you go. Some ATMs would give me nothing and others sometimes multiples of a thousand but charged you for each individual thousand. Bloody annoying and frustrating.

I can confirm that ATMs in the USA accept the 6 digit pin from my SCB card. Wells Fargo banks allowed $1000 withdrawal per day, US Bank allowed $2000 per day. Dont forget to change your daily withdrawal limit at BKK Bank first.

I am in USA now.........80% of machines no problem.

In major supermarkets, no problem..........small stores and some restaurants it doesn’t read the card.

I returned last month, visited Tabaso Province and Mexico City.

I used my BKK Bank Debit 6-digit card for many purchases, POS etc, never used the ATM.
