Do I have to update my passport data in a bank?

Recommended Posts

I have the green bank account which I've had for years. I opened it with a passport which will expire in 2 years. I have a second passport of the same country. Now I'm about to leave the country. Should I better go to a kasikorn branch and update my passport details? If I return in 3 years, will I have any problem to do that?I'll have to show them first my expired passport, right? It may also be shredered if I obtain a new one, in place of it, during the time I'm out of the country.

If you're about to leave, I wouldn't bother. I have been here 24 yrs., on 5 yr. Canadian passports (until the most recent one, when we finally got 10 yr. ones.) It has never been an issue for me at various banks. If you are trying to do something and the bank's computer is blinking an error message, tell them then. That happened to me a few weeks ago.

I would go in and update it, doesn't take long.

 

When you get a new passport, they usually cut the front page in half and stamp cancelled on the pages or the front main page, you can also ask to keep it, if they don't give it back to you, just make sure you have a copy and maybe certified by someone that is a true copy if the original.

I needed another bank book, and I took the opportunity to give my old and new passport to the employee who updated my file.
And it seems to me that I signed a form.
But hey, we are made to sign so many papers !!!!!

Only if you want to be able to use the new passport as identification in the event of a lost card, transaction or anything else they may require Id for.

I didn't need a certified copy to update my p.p. details from old to new p.port. 

Not all cut the front page in half.

OP didn't say what countries' PP he holds but in UK, they just cut the corner off old ones and stamp "Cancelled" on all pages.

IMO, do update your details with the bank - if/when you want to change almost anything on the account, you will be asked to show it. I'm going to have to get a new card from SCB in a couple of weeks and I did update my PP details when I changed it last.

When my ATM card was expiring and I needed a new one, things started getting complicated. Had to update everything at the branch where I originally opened the account (which was only opened when I was at work - so that was a day's worth of personal leave) just to get to the point I could ask for new ATM card. It's better to keep it current.

I updated two ATM cards last week, they had my old passport details, no issue, in and out in ten minutes with two new cards (SCB)
