Need to transfer money to Guinea-Bissau? Are you considering a bank wire to send the money to Guinea-Bissau? Before you visit your bank to organise it, make sure you check the wire transfer fees. It might come as a shock how much the fees will be and depending on the amount, it might be better to have a look at the alternatives to forward the money another way.
What can make it more expensive is in addition to your financial institution imposing a fee for sending the funds to a bank in Guinea-Bissau, the recipient receiving the transfer of funds will possibly also be charged a fee from the bank where they have their account. A way to reduce the likelihood of this charge is to remit the international wire transfer in the currency of their account.
To make a bank wire transfer to Guinea-Bissau, you might require a SWIFT code. These are unique for each financial institution and are based on things including the individual banking institution and country.
