Foreign Currency Wires
U.S. Dollars or Foreign Currency Wire Transfers
If you do not know the currency of the receiving account, you should send in U.S. Dollars. Generally,* the beneficiary will receive an international wire in foreign currency sooner than if it was sent in U.S. dollars.
- International wires generally arrive at the recipient bank in two business days.
- International wires are a secure and convenient way to transfer funds overseas.
In-person international wire transfers may be requested by visiting one of our branch locations.
The best method to execute cross-border transaction services and to ensure the collection of international payments is via wire transfer. If you received a traditional payment from overseas in the form of a Foreign Check, we would assist in processing the item on your behalf.
*Sending foreign currency through U.S. dollars does not guarantee funds will always arrive sooner.
