At the beginning of June 2017, the Bank of Thailand amended its foreign exchange regulations.
Several of the changes will now ease the process for money to flow into and out of Thailand and make doing business in and with Thailand easier.
Significant improvements include:
Relaxed regulations for outward remittances: payments will now be allowed for goods that will not be brought into Thailand and the required supporting document requirements are less stringent, including the need for a stamped Foreign Exchange Transaction Form.
Other changes affect securities companies, money transfer agents, and futures brokers. These new rules should facilitate business transactions and improve Thailand’s attractiveness for foreign investment.
