This is known as a SWIFT payment and:
- costs £20
- can take 4 working days or longer
- there’s no limit on how much you can send
- you need to use your current account to send or receive a SWIFT payment – you can’t use a savings account
Make sure you have enough money in your account
You will need to have enough money in your account to pay the £20 fee, as well as the amount you are sending.
For example, if you were sending £100, you would need at least £120 in your account.
If you don’t have enough to pay the fee, the transaction may not go through.
If you have a FlexBasic account and you are making a SWIFT payment in UK pounds (£) to the European Economic Area (EEA), the £20 fee will be refunded the next working day after transaction is complete.
If you have a FlexOne, FlexStudent or FlexGraduade account, there is no transaction fee.
Some countries ask for more details when you send money
To avoid your payment being delayed or rejected, check if you need to include extra information for your SWIFT payment.
