Foreign Currency Denominated Account


Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if any of you are familiar with "Foreign Currency Denominated Accounts" ?

I have some Euro which I would like to cash but, with the rate as it is, I'm wondering if it would be better to wait until a better rate is available.

Anybody have any experience ?

Which banks ?

It's not clear to me if you want to open a foreign currency account or simply to cash some Euro. If you require the former, most of the large Thai banks offer such accounts as does HSBC in Bangkok. If you want to just cash Euro then you don't necessarily need a foreign currency account to do so - if you are planning to transfer the Euro from overseas the Euro can be directed to any Thai Baht account and the receiving bank will make the exchange. If you want to cash a Euro cheque, well simply you wouldn't want to do that in Thailand because of the length of time it takes. As for waiting for a better exchange rate, you must take a view whether this is a good thing or not since nobody really knows.
