How to update Passbook (Bank book) at an ATM using Bangkok bank as an example
In the bank branch or next to the bank we find an ATM with the inscription “Passbook Update”.
The ATM screen says “Please open the latest page of your passbook”.
What do you think this inscription means? If you think that you really need to open the very last page of the passbook, then you are wrong. In fact, you need to open a page that has the latest record of a bank account transaction.
Insert the Passbook top into the appropriate hole in the ATM.
The ATM will completely “swallow” Passbook and will work with it for some time. The screen will display “Please wait” at this time.
If the new entries do not fit on one page, then you will see the following message:
There are remaining transactions. Please open a new page and insert passbook again.
That is, the page is already filled with records.
Take the Passbook, flip to the next blank page, and reinsert the Passbook into the ATM.
When everything is ready, you will see the inscription
Please remove passbook. Thank you.
