How do international money transfers work?

International money transfers usually happen via the SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) network, which allows banks and other financial institutions to communicate safely and swiftly. The SWIFT network transmits wire transfer information between thousands of banks worldwide.

The instructions are sent from the sender’s bank before reaching the final bank. To make an international transfer, you will need to provide information like:

  • Name and address of the recipient’s bank
  • Recipient’s IBAN (International Bank Account Number)
  • BIC/SWIFT code of recipient’s bank
  • Reason for the transfer
  • Transfer and currency amount

Please note that the transfer fee might be paid entirely by you or the recipient or split between you.

Some of the fees that are associated with international money transfers are:

  • Outgoing transfer fees
  • Intermediary bank fees
  • Incoming transfer fees
  • Mark up on exchange rate fees
