Buying Gbp At Super Rich

Recommended Posts

No way would it be possible. Even if it was, I would imagine there would be all sorts of regulatory issues to deal with and the authorities would be alerted as to why someone would want to acquire 40k sterling in Thailand.

patently untrue. many money changers will even wire it out of the country for you if you wish. for a fee of course.

i am making no specific remarks regarding the legality of the transaction, but have personally wired a substantial amount out of the country, and have witnessed significant exchange transactions, though not at super rich specifically.

You'll have to show your passport of course.

If Super Rich won't do it, though I suspect they will even if you have to wait for the notes, try the other money changers. Super Rich is not the only game in town. Some of the other money changers are very much "no questions asked".

I'm not sure what you're trying to do, but I'm guessing you're trying to repatriate money spent on a property here in Thailand, back to the UK. Is that correct?

If it is, why doesn't he just ask his Thai bank to make a transfer to his UK bank a/c?

An acquaintance who repatriated to the UK recently sold his Thai property and asked the branch of Bangkok Bank where he had his account if they could do this. Their initial response was 'can not', and somewhat grasping at straws he rang the British Embassy helpline to ask whether it was possible. They said they didn't know, but would find out. They rang him back in a couple of days and gave him sufficient info to go back to the bank and get them to set it up for him. For the benefit of the 'whingers' (see other current thread), he said the Embassy couldn't have been more helpful.

The Superrich rates at Ratchadamri: http://www.superrich1965.com/

The spread as of now is 30 satang (48.80/48/50).

They have an Android App. which is handy.

If you call they can probably accommodate any transaction.

There are several major bank branches within a few hundred meters of the Superrich office. Cash moves back and forth at a pretty rapid pace.

There are more aggressive (even narrower spreads) money changers on Soi Phradipat, with many major bank branches nearby.

transactions over certain amount have to be reported to some government department. i believe the limit use to be US$10,000 or equivalent, but may have changed. so they should take a copy of your passport, and pass it on.
