Recommended Posts

They all have my details & transactions for the last 29 years anyway.

The tax avoiders will be in for a surprise though

So Now, besides our data's every click through surveillance capitalism, they now want to know our bodies to.

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.

Will that make it easier or harder to open a bank account? :crazy:

I'm sure that biometric ids will be used in addition to the regular paperwork, rather than replacing it.

It won't change anything unless you are a fraudster.

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.
