Does anyone know if a Thai can open an Australian bank account in Thailand? Thanks in advance.

Don't know if Oz  regulations would permit, but try HKBC,  they have branches in Oz and Thailand. Citibank may also be a path to check.

A TFN declaration form has been sent, but what that entails regarding the pension benefits is unknown at this stage.

There are no Aussie banks in Thailand as not allowed. Cambodia has the anz which has a branch in poi pet probably closest branch to Thailand. In Australia now you need proof as in an id of some sort. But in Australia. Vanuatu had a Westpac branch once. Can call poi pet branch and see what. They don't deal in Australia currency but.

Thanks, but it's to claim Superannuation benefits, and they only pay into a bank account in Australia.

Prolly have to go to Aus then if an ANZ account opened in Poi Pet does not meet the requirements.

If she doesn't provide a TFN, won't the the superannuation be taxed at 47%?

I believe a Thai wife can apply for a TFN (with help!) on line.

I recall another member stating he did it for his lady.

I'm pretty sure you can only apply online if you're in Australia.

I've been sent a TFN form and other documents. The problem is the bank account.

Has she got a TFN though?
