It may not be possible to avoid the forex charges for small amounts. And if you had a big amount, you would be using IBKR.

This has been discussed earlier in this thread and i don't have the exact post, but the SCB accounts don't accept cash (or there is a charge if you deposit cash). Which means you have to do TT or fund transfer and there are some sort of fund transfer charges involved.
