We can assist you when receiving payments from overseas in a foreign currency. We can help you determine the best way to handle these payments and provide the services to deposit them into your account.

In general, the quickest and most convenient way for someone to send you funds from overseas is via a Telegraphic Transfer.

If you’re receiving a large amount of money, we recommend you request a Telegraphic Transfer for security and speed.
