Want to send money to Afghanistan? Thinking about a bank wire to transfer the money to Afghanistan? Before you visit your financial institution to do it, make sure you check the wire transfer fees. It may come as a shock as to how much the fees and charges will be and depending on the amount of the transfer, it might be better to forward the money by other methods.
What can make it more costly is in addition to your financial institution charging a fee for sending the funds to a bank in Afghanistan, the individual getting the transfer may incur a fee from their bank. A way to minimise the likelihood of the charge is to send the international wire transfer in their designated currency.
To make a wire transfer to Afghanistan, you will possibly require a SWIFT code. These are different for each bank and are based on a number of things such as the bank and country.
