Bank letter for Immigration, can it be from any bank branch?


Recommended Posts

I normally get my annual letter and copy of bank statement from my local branch where I have my account, with no problems.

 

Is it possible to get the letter from a different branch of the same bank, or is only the branch where I have my account able to provide a letter.

 

Thanks.

I think most people (myself included) in Bangkok use a branch in the basement at CW for their letter so I would say no problem.   I've also got a letter from another branch (not my own) when

At most banks you can get the letter at any branch. I can confirm it can be done at Bangkok Bank.

My experience at Bangkok Bank. Last year I used a different branch than where my account was held. It took five days. This year I went to the branch where my account is held and it took only 20 minute

I've also got a letter from another branch (not my own) when I was going to Penang to get my initial Non-O Visa & again, wasn't a problem.

- if you mean does Immigration care, I think the answer is no.

- if you mean will any branch issue the letter, It might well depend on which bank you are with.

What do we need a letter for?

To prove confirm you bank account is real and valid if using the money in the bank option or transfers into your account to prove your income.

I got my letters last year and this year while waited at a Bangkok Bank branch that is several hundred kilometers from the branch where my account was opened.

Were you getting the standard bank letter or a statement?

The visa agent guy I have used for years takes my bank book to the book update machine at the bank and deposits 100 baht into my account. The bank book gets updated on the spot and then taken as proof on funds.

How Much does that cost?

Maybe he is getting the bank letter as well. It is on the list of requirements to apply for the extension.

I can only speak for BB where I have used different branches and Immigration have accepted these. The main problem is how they interpret the time scale.  I once paid for a letter on a Friday and immigration wouldn't accept it on the Monday after the weekend.

 

I also had too much money in the account , but that's another issue.

Personally due to all the inconsistencies in different immigration offices, banks (and every other Thai administration office around the country), personally i'd not risk it.

 

It would make sense and suit me fine if you could use any branch. When I do my extension renewal I go to my local branch for them opening at 8.30, get the letter then drive 2 hours to the Immigration Office. If I could leave early and get the lettter from the branch nearest to the IO, I could get the job done earlier. However I won't risk blank stares at the alternative bank branch, or if lucky there, wont risk the branch letter being different when at the IO. I hate these 'surprises' you get sometimes.
