Stop all the moaning about this.

They already use it at the Airports....so if you think its a bad thing to use for Bank Accounts because you are worried they will sell your data....maybe its sold already via Immigration.

If you dont like they way Thailand is run with certain rules...then leave and find somewhere else to live and pay for cheap girls to keep you company in your lonely lives

Why?Control.Like China.If you do not comply with government directives you can be punished digitally.Think SkyNet in Terminator.

Also, watch out for more difficulties in opening a simple savings account as a foreigner.

 

In China, in many shops where they sell SIM cards, you, as a foreigner, cannot even buy one, cause they need a Chinese ID card and -number, so a foreign passport won't 'qualify'. If they made a system in Thailand 'tailor-made for only Thai ID cards', then good luck opening a bank account as a foreigner in the future...

I saw a vlog the other day. The guy can't even buy a train ticket anymore without relying on his Chinese wife. They also have a rating system for foreigners.

I can see it now. scan your fingerprint, printer prints out 5 copies, manually stamp each copy with signing box and then sign in the box, retina scan, print out 5 copies, manually stamp signing box, sign in box.

Copy passport (all pages) copy passbook, fill in application form, 5 copies, sign all copies..........

One question . Why?

 

what is wrong with using thai ID cards or passports ?

Because it will be better to have a system that isn’t maintained and doesn’t work when you really need it to. Plus, someone is going to make a lot of money putting these in.

We are talking about bank here not the government.

You can get a SIM card with your passport. But a bank account is another beast.
