bank account / Force majeure

Recommended Posts

I have been living in Vietnam for more than 6 months and have not been able to leave the country because of the continuing coronavirus hype and to fix my personal issues in Thailand and then return to Vietnam.

 

I own 2 personal savings accounts in Thailand banks. The access to both accounts is allowed if I personally present my bank book and passport. I have no ATM card or other instruments to access my account. I contacted both banks several times by email and phone but the girls answering my inquiry are not sufficient prepared to answer my questions in this regard even when I asked for the supervisors' advice.

 

I wonder whether one of you knows the banking regulations dealing with this aspect where the account owner cannot present himself because of Force majeure. I would need to know which documents/certifications I will need to present and transfer my money from my accounts at both banks in Thailand to my new account in Vietnam without my physical presence in Thailand.

One would believe a person in Thailand holding your "Power of Attorney" would be able to act on your behalf, but the question would remain if they required to present your original documents or could act with certified copies.

Another question, do you have all your previous funding documents in order required for removing funds from Thailand.

You are right, but I have no family in Thailand ... I think this should also work without an intermediary when certificates from the German and Thai embassies in Vietnam are submitted ... Such things are mostly decided by superiors in middle management and that common staff knows nothing about it.

Yes, I have the deposit document. The amount has been deposited before 2 years in my account and is without changes except some interests...

I gather the OP hasn't to set up online banking on his Thai bank accounts and if he has, doesn't have a WP so can't transfer the funds internationally?

There are some ThaiVisa threads discussing using DeeMoney to transfer funds. Not sure what their requirements for setup are but you might try contacting them.

Nonother access tools are available except the personal presentation of passport and bank book...
