Local Accounts Setup

When you first arrive in Thailand, there are many things to set up and in order to truly make living in Thailand easy as a foreigner. Our team at Playlab will help you hit the ground running by assisting you in setting up the essentials for living in Thailand. From getting a SIM card, to setting up your first Thai Bank Account, and more, we’ll make sure you’re set up for success from day one.

Local Thai Bank Account

In order to use most services in Thailand, you will need a Thai bank account. Paying local shops, vendors, and even your Foodpanda or Grab food deliveries is predominately done via QR Payment via your Thai Bank. Our team will assist you in choosing the best Thai Bank for foreigners and getting you set up.

Local Sim Card

In order to stay connected with friends and family back home, as well as have access to essential information like maps and directions while out and about a local sim card is a must. Our team can help you choose the best data plan for your needs and get you all set up.

Renting a Condo or Home

If you’re planning on staying in Thailand for an extended period of time, you will likely want to rent a room or apartment at some point. We will connect you with our trusted network of Real Estate agents in your city of choice to help you find the perfect condo or house you desire and help you negotiate a fair long-term lease.

Set Up Your Utilities

We will also assist you in linking your billing through the apps on your phone so you can pay easily or automatically and not have to worry about the bills coming in the mail.

This card offers many great benefits and perks such as 5x points on dining, 3x points on airfare and hotels, as well as special perks like airport lounge access & limousine transfers. We will help you apply for this by providing them salary slips and giving our reference to assist with your approval.
