Transferring funds within Thailand is very straightforward and there are a number of services to choose from.
Self-service banking channels such as Bualuang ATMs, Bualuang CDMs, Bualuang Phone, Bualuang iBaning and Bualuang mBanking are cost-effective and convenient options to transfer funds anywhere in Thailand, whether to your own accounts at Bangkok Bank or to third-party accounts at Bangkok Bank or other domestic banks in Thailand.
When transferring via an ATM or internet or mobile banking, you can opt for Bangkok Bank to send an SMS to the recipient confirming the transfer.
The Standing Order service enables you to set up regular automated funds transfers between Bangkok Bank accounts. You have to specify the fund value to be transferred to make a payment such as for a bill or rent and the same amount will be transferred each time. You can set up recurring funds transfers to a Bangkok Bank account for up to 12 months in advance. You can also schedule in advance the date you wish to discountinue the transfer.
To apply for this service, please bring your passport and deposit account passbook or cheque book to any Bangkok Bank branch. You can also set up a Standing Order online via Bualuang iBanking.
Interbank – If you are sending money and don’t have a Bangkok Bank account
Even if you don’t have a Bangkok Bank account, you can still transfer money via our Interbank Transfer service, so long as the recipient has a bank account. Available at Bangkok Bank branches, this is a handy service if you are a traveller in Thailand.
BAHTNET – Transferring large sums to other banks
When it comes to transferring large sums within Thailand, the fast, safe and reliable way is via BAHTNET, a system owned and operated by the Bank of Thailand.
BAHTNET is available over-the-counter at Bangkok Bank branhces and lets you transfer funds to other accounts at designated banks on the same day. You can transfer any amount from your Bangkok Bank account via BAHTNET. Individuals can even transfer funds without an account but the amount is limited to Baht 200,000.
Online Money Transfer – When neither party has a bank account
If neither you nor the recipient have a bank account, you can still transfer funds from a Bangkok Bank branch. You will be asked to fill in a form outlining the recipient’s details and will be given a reference number. The recipient can then present the reference number together with their ID at a Bangkok Bank branch to receive the money.
Our international payment network of foreign banks worldwide means you can send or receive funds efficiently, securely and cost-effectively.
Receiving funds from abroad via SWIFT
A SWIFT transfer, also referred to as telegraphic transfer, is a fast and secure way to receive funds directly to your Bangkok Bank account.
To send funds to your Bangkok Bank account from overseas, you will need to provide your bank overseas with your account name and number as it appears on your Bangkok Bank passbook, along with your bank name (Bangkok Bank), bank address in Thailand, your address in Thailand and our SWIFT code (BKKBTHBK).
Sending funds abroad via SWIFT
With over 1,000 partner banks around the world and our own international branch network, we can ensure that your funds get to where they are needed, at a much lower cost.
When sending funds to a bank account overseas via SWIFT, you will need to provide Bangkok Bank with the recipient’s account name, account number and address as well as the name and address of the recipient’s bank.
You will also need to bring your passport along with a document that shows the source of money in your account when transferring USD 50,000 or the equivalent in another currency or more i.e. credit advice or a confirmation letter of your income from your employer to meet Bank of Thailand requirements.
If you are transferring funds to countries in Europe and Middle East, you will need to provide the recipient’s IBAN (International Bank Account Number) to help European banks process the payment faster and avoid a returned payment.
