Making an international payment using the banks network is a reliable and safe way to send money. But the time for a bank to bank transfer depends on factors including:
Whether there are any bank holidays or weekends. For instance, a transfer made on Friday might take until Tuesday to arrive.
The currencies involved in the transaction. Major currencies like the Euro, Sterling and the US Dollar that are traded on foreign exchange markets and are quicker to transfer. Exotic currencies that are traded less, can take longer to exchange and transfer.
Whether your order is pre-funded or funded after making the currency trade. Most banks will take between 2-5 business days to make an international payment.
Most major currency transfers arrive within 1-2 days (from the time AquireFX receives your funds).
