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 if sent by 5:00 p.m. EST or 3:00 p.m. PST.
- International wires are 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 will assist in processing the item on your behalf.
