All BANK DRAFTS (PDF 345KB) must be:
• Purchased from Bangkok Bank, Kasikorn Bank, or Siam Commercial Bank (SCB). (There is no need to have an account at the bank to purchase a bank draft) (Kasikorn Bank calls a “Bank Draft” a “Bill of Exchange”). Made out to “American Embassy Bangkok.” (No variations, errors, or typos are permitted. Do not write on or make any markings on the bank draft.)
• In the exact amount of Thai Baht (THB) for your total service.
• Submitted at the time of service.
• Issued within the last six months. You can show this to the bank:



ลูกค้าท่านนี้ต้องการซื้อแบงค์ดร๊าฟ(สกุลเงินบาทเท่านั้น)

โดยจำนวนเงินอ้างอิงตามอัตราแลกเปลี่ยนของสถานทูต

และระบุสั่งจ่ายถึง “American Embassy Bangkok”

รบกวนช่วยอำนวยความสะดวกให้ด้วยค่ะ

Sometimes the US Embassy has other business other than the Outreach at a specific location. This might explain their time schedule.

Another successful Outreach in KK. 88 customers were served. Service started at 11 am and finished after 2 pm. Thank you ACS for a job well done.

Agree! The ACS visits are a major bennie for those of us who'd prefer not to go to Bangkok.

The embassy is encouraging citizens to renew their passports by mail. A friend of ours recently renewed his......mailed in the old and got the new in about 2.5 weeks. Pretty simple process!
I'd guess half or so of the people in KK yesterday were there to renew their passports. https://th.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-se ... ult-renew/

I agree. Renewing your passport by mail is a simple process. I did mine in March. Returned in less than 3 weeks.

It's actually easier than turning in all the required paperwork to ACS when they come to town because there's no waiting to meet with the ACS folks.
