  1. We will join the crowds cheering your departure.
  2. Not true, I have seen some being built and confirmed use with owners.
  3. 160-180k is enough to get good quality bank and financial institution accounts. But it is not much if you have a large medical bill.
  4. Incorrect. It is the net Baht received for a given amount sent which is important. That is a result of fees and exchange rate both. I have used WISE and a $10 SWIFT fee and I know the facts about how many baht I get from each on like USD transfers. $3,000 transfer and the difference between the two transfer methods is usually less than $10 with SWIFT often better. Those are facts, of course using different banks will give different results. If you read the second sentence of my post you will find that I was talking about more than just fees. How much baht you get
  5. Find a financial institution that offers free or low cost, 5-10 dollar SWIFT fees. With these you will get almost the same Baht as WISE from the US to many Thai Banks. Some possibilities: Vanguard doesn’t charge a wire transfer fee if the amount of the wire is over $5,000; the fee is only $5 if the amount is between $1,000 and $5,000. Fidelity doesn’t charge a wire transfer fee if your total household balance at Fidelity is above a certain amount ($15 otherwise). Business checking accounts sometimes get free wire transfers. For example you get 10 free wire
  6. Why use Wise when there are other ways to transfer giving comparable results and no issues about foreign transfers or not? Wise is not the least expensive just because they advertise themselves to be.
  7. Happened to me. Bank gave me some info about the transfer to take to Kasikorn who prepared a letter of explanation for me to give to immigration and it was accepted without any questions. Kasikorn CM on Thapae was familiar with the process, in the back, second floor.
