Staying in Pattaya but Bank in Bangkok for Extension Letter


Recommended Posts

Hello I'm staying in Pattaya for a few months but my home branch of Bangkok Bank is in Bangkok. I need to renew my Extension for Retirement and I'm wondering if I can just get the money letter locally on the day of application or do I have to renew in Chaeng Watthana and get the letter there?

Thanks

Hi, I live in Nong Khai and last year I stayed in Pattaya for a few months, I just went to the closest Kasikorn Bank and they did my letter no problem. I dont think you will have a problem.

Where did you previously do your extensions. Meaning which imm office.

That's where you need apply for your 12 month extension.

Also the guy you replied to, he "lives in Nong Khai" but obtained an extension Pattaya?

I'm confused.

As I've said before on a thread similar to this my bank is BKK my branch is in Pattaya has been for all the time I've lived in Thailand.

I haven't lived in Pattaya for 13 years now. If I need a bank letter I go to my local branch were I now live. I get them to phone my branch and get them to send a statement to my local branch they print and sign it. No issue whatsoever

Yes I understand that. Perfectly normal. Your applying for extension where you live.

Perhaps I'm reading too much into the OP. He states living in Pattaya "for few months" wants to obtain his bank letter and apply for extension in Pattaya.

States wants to obtain letter locally and obtain extension where he is currently, meaning Pattaya.

I attend CW. So when I wish to apply for extension I can fly to say Udon thaini and do it there. Answer NO

Sure you can do this, you just have to "move" (somebody has to do a TM30 for you) there for a few hours.

You can fly to Udon in the morning, visit your friend there, he reports you as being at his place with a TM30. Then you go into the immigration office and apply for your extension. Everything in compliance with Thai law.

Appreciate your advice. Frankly don't think that would work. Happy to stand corrected by others.

TM30 won't cut it.

ps. Just had another read. Thinking that your advice is rubbish.

I can't see a problem if you are registered by TM 28 and TM 30 at an address you can use the office to get an extension.

But why would you is more to the point of your not living there in reality

You did not mention that you had filed tm28 in your OP. 

So only for readers of your thread....

Your staying "few months" in Pattaya. 

Filed a tm28 in order to obtain annual extension in Pattaya? And imm there will accept tm30 of where you live?

At CW (yes different office), I need show lease, map etc.

No need reply. I'm outta this thread. Clearly I'm just distracting what you already know.

The letter we talk of is not a statement so much as a standard letter stating current balance and confirming it is your account. I am pretty sure I have obtained the required letter at a sub-branch of Bangkok Bank, on the way towards immigration, rather than having to go to the main branch on Second Rd. (Where the account is held).

Definitely no probs with Bangkok Bank either in my experience. Although my account is registered at the main Rayong branch I've hitherto been able to obtain letters and 6-month statements needed for Immigration purposes at a local Big C sub-branch with no difficulty at all.

depends on what you need.  local branches only have limited access to the databases.  not sure if it's 90 days or six months.  older transaction info has to be provided by the branch maintaining the account.

 

for example if you're at CW and need a statement showing funds brought in from outside of thailand, but your account is at silom and the funds came in outside that limited window.....

 

maybe they could fax that to your local branch, but would not be immediate.

Love it when people don't read I'm NOT the OP
