Want to wire money to Armenia? Considering a wire to transfer money to Armenia? Before you walk into your financial institution to organise it, be sure to check the wire transfer fees. It might come as a shock as to how much the charges will be and depending on the amount of the transfer, it might not be worth sending the money by bank wire transfer to send the money using another method.
What makes more expensive is in addition to your financial institution imposing a fee for sending the money to a bank in Armenia, the individual receiving the transfer will probably incur a fee at their end. A way to minimise the possibilty of this fee is to send the international wire transfer in their local currency.
