Gotcha, but what to do if he is only travelling and not intending to live and work in a Country long-term?Mad Scientist wrote:Doesn't need to have a branch here in SG. Santander definitely has these sets of docs for him to sign prior his arrival. He can leave out the appointed bank in SG first as Santander would need the local bank swift code etc.. for TT. Once in SG open a bank account, inform Santander of your local bank account number details etc and all is done.BillyB wrote:
I thought he was carrying cash. It sounds like he is travelling so just withdrawing when needed.
MS, how do you do a authorize a standing order at a local bank here if your originating bank - Santander - doesn't have oversea's branches in Asia?
This is what I have done when I went on extended assignments. overseas be it from Maybank SG to National Bank OZ or BNZ to DBS even to BOC Shanghai. I would not want flashing my cash everywhere I go, this is how I did it.
Of course the other way is look for banks that have branches here in SG like HSBC, Citibank or Stanchart
The only option is taking a pile of cash or using your ATM card and bearing the charges right?
