      Currency Symbol and Swift Codes

According to the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT), the Thai baht was the 10th most commonly used currency in the world as of February 2017.

      If you want to send money to a bank account in Thailand, you will need the bank’s SWIFT code. Given below are SWIFT codes on some popular banks in Thailand.

      Case Study

      Gan got an opportunity to move to Australia, where he found a job as a chef. His wife and young son were to join him a year or so later. Until they arrived in Australia, Gan was to keep sending them some money every month. Always the one to be financially prudent, he compared his alternatives before his first transfer. The results of his comparison are in the corresponding table.

      Safety Tips for Picking Up Cash in Thailand

      Instances of bag snatching and pick pocketing are common across most cities and tourist areas. Thieves on motorbikes are known to target foreigners when they are walking or travelling in tuk tuks. If you use public transport, keep your valuables and important documents out of sight. Hang on to your belongings if you take a nap or sleep when on public transport.

      Do not leave your drink unattended or accept drink from strangers because instances of drinks being spiked are known to take place. There have been reports of unprovoked attacks and sexual assaults from tourist destinations, and they tend to increase in frequency during full moon parties.

       

      What Information Do I Need to Transfer Money to Thailand?

      You will need to provide different kinds of information when transferring money to Thailand.

      • Bank account. To send money to a bank account in Thailand you will need the complete name of the recipient, his or her bank account number, the bank’s name, and the bank’s SWIFT code.
      • Cash pickup up. Determine where the recipient will collect transferred funds from and provide the recipient’s complete name. To collect the money the recipient will need to provide a reference number and a valid form of identification document.

       

      Regulations When Transferring Money To and From Thailand

      The Thai baht is completely convertible and there are no transfer restrictions on the flow of money in or out of the country. The Bank of Thailand is responsible for overseeing the country’s payment systems and maintaining the currency’s price stability.

      Non-residents of Thailand may hold baht-denominated bank accounts in the country, with a maximum balance limit of THB 3 million. When travelling out of the country, you may carry up to THB 50,000. If you are travelling to a neighboring country, the limit increases to THB 2 million, although you will need to declare any amount over THB 450,000 to the country’s customs authorities.
