You don't need anyone to go with you. Just go with your passport to Bangkok Bank. In my case they didn't even look at the visa. Just took my details from the biometrics page.

You still have to get the money into your Bangkok bank account to be able to withdraw it - maybe that is what Bangkok bank hope to make their money on ...... also i presume they charged you for the ATM card?

After about 7 or 8 years my ATM card was in bad shape, so I got a new one. With the new one could only use it at BB ATM's so went in to complain. They said to get one that worked at other ATM's like my old card, I would need to turn it in and for some reason wait 7 days for a new card. WTF

Been planing to do it sometime, just have not. It is a dam pain, say you go out to Ngnee Soon, and their ATM is not working, your fu*ked. Just happened again last Sunday. :mad:

As said before there was a good intention behind it.
Bangkok Bank introduced their new Smart Card - obviously without informing the other banks - that would check the validity of the ATM card even before You are asked to enter Your pin.
This first check actually helps you against ATM-card fraud.

Well, since the other banks refused to accept, Bangkok Bank has to offer pure VISA Debit Card that can be used also abroad - just as any ATN-card with either VISA, MAESTRO or Mastercard logo on it. These are centrally produced in Bangkok, therefore this 7 days waiting time.

Citibank US charges 3 percent when I use their ATM card. That was enough to put me off using a foreign ATM card. That was before the Thai banks started their charges. I keep their ATM card but it would take a dire emergency for me to use it.

Citibank US - have their credit card and only use in US, for they charge a foreign fee outside country and it will be a cold day in hell before I would use outside country, when other do not charge a foreign fee.

The Citibank card is for only ATM's and it is current. Citibank cancelled my credit card when I changed my address to Thailand.

The USA Citibank must be a difficult mob to get along with.

I am a Citibank customer and have an ATM card and a Citibank Credit card along with 3 savings accounts in AUD, SGD and USD currencies in Singapore.
All under a Thai address.
I now also have a Dubai Citibank savings and ATM card now, under my Dubai address.
I also have a Thai Citibank ATM card along with a THB savings account under my Thai address. I started this account in Bangkok.
All linked online.
I use them because I get free international money transfers between all my accounts. But I have never tried to send money out of Thailand.
I was able to start the Thailand Citibank account a couple of years ago. I am a gold member which did help.
Done on a tourist visa.
