    Thai Bank Draft

    Does anyone know how to get a Bank Draft written up in LOS? I thought this would be the easiest part of the visa. It was so hard to explain to Noy what was required but she did get the idea eventually. She then went to the bank and they had no idea what she was talking about.

    I then got Noy to call the Visa Courier centre who told her what to do. She went back to the bank and still have no idea what she wants. I have also talked to an English speaking person at the bank and they had no idea what a Bank Draft/ Bank Cheque/Money order was....

    I would have thought that in Phuket that this would be something that happens often for Visa applications or for the Expats in Phuket. This is really doing my head in and I am out of ideas.

    When I did first TV in Phuket we went to a Bank at the big Tesco Centre and asked for a Bank Draft, and it was sorted in about 10 minutes, so I am at a loss why the bank cannot understand what you want. All I can suggest is print this page and hope someone at the Bank can read English Australia Visa Information - Thailand - Visitor Fees

    The size of the branch could be the issue...many banks are small and have limited services and product knowledge.

    Thanks guys.I map shocked that they had on idea what was going on. Noy called back the courier centre and told them what was happening. The only way to say for it is by bank draft still... but they said they would give Noy a piece of paper to take to the bank near the courier centre and they will write one out...
