Want to wire money to the Cook Islands? Thinking about a wire to transfer the money to the Cook Islands? Before you walk into your bank to organise it, make sure you check the wire transfer fees. You might get a shock as to how much the fees will be and depending on the dollar amount, it might not be worth sending the money by bank wire transfer to send the money using another method.
What can make it even more costly is in addition to your bank imposing a fee for sending the funds to a place in the Cook Islands, the person getting the funds may also be charged a fee from the bank where they have their account. A way to reduce the possibilty of this charge is to send the international wire transfer in their designated currency.
To make a bank wire transfer to the Cook Islands, you might require a SWIFT code. These are unique codes for each bank and are based on things including the country and individual bank.
