Kasikornbank, one of the leading banks in Thailand, has announced that Thailand Elite members are no longer required to make an appointment three working days in advance to visit any of its branches. This move is aimed to streamline the account opening process for Thailand Elite Visa Holders.

To open an account with Kasikornbank as a Thailand Elite Visa Holder, customers can now visit any Kasikornbank branch with the required documents:
- Valid passport (same as registered with Thailand Elite),
- Valid Thailand Elite’s Privilege Entry Visa (PE) or Special Entry Visa (SE), or identity documents issued by their state of citizenship or Thailand’s authorities, such as an ID card, driver’s license, or house registration.
- Thailand Elite Membership Card
- Thai mobile phone number
- Mailing address in Thailand.
Thai Deposit Accounts
One of the benefits of opening a Thai Baht Deposit Account with Kasikornbank doesn’t require a minimum deposit.
Foreign Deposit Accounts (FCD)
For foreign Currency Deposit accounts, customers are required to make a minimum deposit of 5,000 USD (or equivalent to 5,000 USD) in a saving account. It is worth noting that Kasikornbank offers 11 currencies for foreign currency deposits, including USD, EUR, AUD, HKD, SGD, CAD, GBP, CHF, JPY, CNY, and MYR.

This initiative by Kasikornbank to simplify the account opening procedure for Thailand Elite members is a huge step towards convenient and effective banking services. The bank has made it simpler for consumers to create accounts and manage their finances by eliminating the requirement to schedule appointments beforehand. Kasikornbank has continued to be one of the best picks for both Thai and international clients because of its wide range of banking services, including foreign currency deposit accounts.
