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 a branch and 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’s probably your best option. You’ll need to come into a branch each time you send a transfer and 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.
