Foreigners can open a bank account in Thailand if they have Work Permit

You can open a bank account in Thailand if you originally plan to come work here with a Work Permit. Banks allow foreign individuals to have a bank account if they work here. They only need to make sure there is a proof that a foreigner is now employed in Thailand.

For those without a Work Permit but want to have a bank account here, there is a possibility—although it is going to be more challenging. You will at least need a Education Visa, a Spouse Visa, or any other proof that you have a reason to stay in Thailand backed by a trustable, long-term rental address. For travelers, there is not a policy that allows you to have a bank account here right now, unfortunately.
