Frequently Asked Questions
1. Where can I exchange commemorative banknotes?
You can exchange commemorative banknotes at any commercial banks in Thailand.
2. Can I exchange foreign currency at the Bank of Thailand?
The Bank of Thailand does not provide currency exchange service; however, you can contact commercial banks in Thailand.
2. How long does it take to redeem damaged banknotes?
Money will be credited immediately for banknotes that have more than three-fifths of the original banknote remaining. However, damaged banknotes which the Government Savings Bank or commercial banks are unable to exchange immediately are forwarded to the Bank of Thailand for examination. As a general rule, once the money reaches the Bank of Thailand, it takes around 10 - 15 days until either the redeemed amount is credited or the claim is rejected. See Damaged Banknote Policy
