Open a current account by depositing a minimum of 10,000 baht at your nearby Bangkok Bank branch. After opening an account, you can purchase personal cheque books with 20 cheques per book. If you should need more, simply request a new one by filling in the cheque form attached with your existing cheque book and show it to the bank officer at your branch. The bank will then issue a new cheque book for you.
You will receive a statement every 6 months to keep up with all the updates, and payments made by cheques. Moreover, you can choose to receive your statement in shorter periods: monthly, weekly or even daily by simply informing your bank officer at the time you open an account. Alternatively, you can notify them of your preference after opening your account. You can also choose to receive the statement at the branch or at your provided house address.
