If you send money out of the country on a regular basis, you can take control of your transfers and send money online.
You’ll need to come into an advice centre to set up your account, but once that’s done, you’ll have complete control over your international transfers.
If international wire transfers aren’t part of your everyday life, a traditional wire transfer is probably your best option. You’ll need to come into an advice centre each time you send a transfer, so that’s why it’s not a great fit for frequent users.
To send international wire transfers, you’ll need:
- the recipient’s name
- their address
- the name and address of their bank
- the applicable route and transit number
- Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) code
