Yes it is.
For Wise and others, the use of domestic bank accounts has muddied the waters surrounding what are perceived as "international " transactions as funds in a currency in many cases don't actually cross the border. As consumers we expect something to be the actuality simply as we tend to complain when something appears out of the norm. For example, when something works better than what was actually designed.
Wise seems to be quite open with what customers have to do if you need to show it as an international transaction, including Bangkok Bank as follows:
From the same article they also state the following:
"If you know you definitely need a FET, it’s best that you send a SWIFT transfer with your bank this time. SWIFT is a more expensive method, because it’s not a local transfer. But it does mean you’ll be able to prove that the money came from abroad."
I was surprised when I read this as my personal experiences in using Wise far exceed what they stated. Perhaps our expectations are now higher, rightly or wrongly, simply as we may have experienced them achieving better than they promoted.
Gap for Pfizer is 3 weeks, and expatvac site uses only Pfizer. That was what the 150k reserved doses for foreigners from the US donation were for and 69k*2 doesn't exceed that. Registrations were already at 35.455 by 6 August, so I still think it's quite slow and certainly not "impossible" by making wrong assumptions.
When was this?
Sinovac was only "not suitable for over 60's" initially, back in February and March, after that it was used across all age groups.
Nobody registered on expatvac over 60 was "offered sinovac", ALL were offered Pfizer (recommended) or Astra Zeneca.
I don't want to be unsympathetic, but if you don't keep up to date with official announcements, widely reported in the Thai and English language media, and you get distracted by some of the "nonsense reporting" and equally nonsense comments, you can't blame the "vaccine programme" for that, certainly for foreigners who have been considerably better served than Thais, and certainly in the last three months.
IF YOU'RE OVER 60 AND NOT REGISTERED ON THE EXPATVAC SITE, YOU SHOULD REGISTER NOW, AND YOU WILL GET PFIZER.
