There are two common methods of remittance: telegraphic transfer or by demand draft.


Telegraphic Transfer: (TT)
  • Telegraphic transfer is the fastest and safest way to transfer your money overseas.
  • The money can be directly credited to the beneficiary's bank account or paid to the beneficiary upon application and identification.
Demand Draft (DD)
  • A bank draft can be carried overseas, sent by mail or couriered to the beneficiary.
  • A bank draft can be cashed immediately or directly credited to the beneficiary's bank account.
  • Any loss or theft should be reported to us immediately so that the paying bank can be notified and arrange to stop payment. A handling fee will apply.
