The good news is you can still get to your money, most branches will stay open (for now) and ATMs will stocked with cash.

The Bank of Thailand and other financial institutions say that they will keep as many branches open as possible to ensure businesses can continue to operate during the Covid-19 emergency.

BoT, the Thai Bankers’ Association, the Association of International Banks and the Government Financial Institutions Association concluded that financial institutions under their supervision were ready to guarantee customers access to important services, including deposits, withdrawals, money transfers, payments and loan procedures.

The announcement include…

  • Branches and credit units would be open as often as possible.
  • customers would be spaced at least 1.5 metres apart while waiting for service.
  • Electronic channels including ATMs, cash deposit machines, internet banking, mobile banking, phone banking and call centres will be operating around the clock.
  • They also warned customers to be wary of fraudulent phone calls seeking their personal and financial details.

The Thaiger notes that ATMs would be a lovely place to hang around if you were a virus. Use a hand sanitiser, or wash your hands, before and after using an ATM. And if you are going to a Thai bank branch, be respectful of the situation and wear a face mask and keep a safe distance with other customers and bank staff.
