Need to wire money to Zimbabwe? Considering a bank wire to send the money to Zimbabwe? Before you walk into your bank to organise it, be sure to check the wire transfer fees. You may get a shock just what the fees will be and depending on the dollar amount, it might make more sense to forward the money another way.
What makes worse is in addition to your financial institution adding a fee for sending the funds to a place in Zimbabwe, the recipient getting the transfer may also incur a fee from the bank where they have their account. A way to minimise the likelihood of the fee is to send the international wire transfer in their designated currency.
To make a bank wire transfer to Zimbabwe, you will possibly require a SWIFT code. These are different codes for each bank and based on things including the bank and country.
