Not sure where to post this Mods. Please move where you think best.

 

I want to bring a cashier's check from my American credit union, to deposit in my Bangkok Bank account when I return in January.

 

Will Bangkok Bank accept it?

 

Please no comments about other transfer of funds methods. This is a yes or no question based on factual knowledge.

 

Thanks.

No reason why they will not honor it albeit it will take sometime to clear it, and don't forget to ask the bank for the toto3 credit note from the bank to show that you have brought money from overseas...

That's what I thought. Not worried about the time limit.

From my own experience, which goes back some years, my answer is definitely YES. However, it may take some time (even weeks) until the check is cleared and credited to your account. Wouldn't it be better to have the funds transferred in another way?

A cashiers check has to be verified as genuine.    Signatures have to be checked.   The OP's check will have to be sent back to the issuing bank for verification.    This could take quite some time in the current situation.

I have paid several cheques from US banks into my Bangkok Bank account without problem. Make sure however that the name on the cheque is identical to the account name, or

you will have a problem. You will get the money credited to your account in 3-4 weeks

Depending on the amount bring some or all in the form of Travelers Check so you'll have some initial funds available if needed.  Safe and good exchange rate.  Do not forget to declare before departing USA.  Can't remember the max now but it includes all funds and negotiable instruments you have with you.   Make sure you double check the fee Bangkok Bank may charge.  They do have a detail of their chargesfor various services on their website.

In 1997, living in Phuket, I had a cashier's check and gave it to BBK and they did not say how long it would take to clear but shortly after, the baht devalued considerably so I lost some money and that is why your idea is not a particularly safe idea and especially during these tumultuous times.
