How Long Does an International Money Transfer Take?
There are dozens of factors that affect the speed of which it takes to send money overseas. Generally, the method you choose to transfer money will be the main factor that will impact transfer speed.
How many days does an international money transfer (or telegraphic transfer/TT) take if you avoid using a bank?
Again, it depends on which company you use.
How long does a wire transfer take to process?
Great question but there is no simple answer.
Assuming you've asked your bank to transfer the money before their cut off time (usually around 5pm) they will process the payment that day. As Wise (formerly known as TransferWise) says in this blog:
'But just because your bank processes an international wire on that business day doesn’t mean it will arrive to your international recipient’s bank account that same day. Many sites quote that an international wire should normally arrive within 1-5 business days. But there are many factors that can add time to your transfer.'
