How long do Foreign Payments Take


Question:
How long do Foreign Payments Take
Answer:

It will take up to 5 working days from the date that the payment is initiated within the Finance Department for a non-urgent payment and up to 3 working days for an urgent payment to arrive in the recipient's bank account.

If there are no bank details supplied a banker's draft (cheque) will need to be obtained and this will take up to 4 working days from the date that the payment is initiated within the Finance Department for the bank to deliver the cheque to the Finance Department.

The cheque will then be sent to the requesting department for secure transport to the recipient - it is recommended that this is by courier to ensure delivery.
