Thai Driver’s License not considered Valid Form of ID

Recommended Posts

PS Unless it was my local branch and they knew me I always used my passport, and it's been possible to use a passport at any other branch of Bkk Bank in the country for years.

If it's a different province they'll charge you commission on any withdrawal.

I can agree that account security is critical, but really wish there was a wallet sized gov’t approved ID card I could carry. Don’t want to carry my passport around daily on the off chance i need to use it

The Pink Card 💳 is a most valid form of ID and I have never had to produce my passport at a bank unless it's to open an account. 

How do you get a pink card? What are the requirements?

Best practice for anything official like banks etc.. take your passport!!

That's one of the things they get right, insisting on a passport, rather than a potentially faked driving licence

I use my driving license for some things at Bangkok bank like cashing a cheque. but for withdrawals and atm card issues you have always needed the ID you set up the account with.

That is why when you get a new passport you should notify them and get the details changed.

To make a new passport, my embassy wouldn’t accept my expired drivers license from 2017 as a valid form of identification and I had to go make a Thai drivers license which they accepted and I was able to make a new 10 year passport.
