Need to send money to Haiti? Are you considering a wire to send the money to Haiti? Before you go your bank to do it, be sure to check the wire transfer fees. It might come as a shock as to how much the fees and charges will be and depending on the dollar amount, it might be better to forward the money another way.
What can make it even worse is in addition to your bank imposing a fee for sending the money to a place in Haiti, the person receiving the transfer of money will possibly also be charged a fee at their end. A way to minimise the possibilty of the charge is to send the international wire transfer in their local currency.
To process a bank wire transfer to Haiti, you might need a SWIFT code. These are different for each financial institution and are based on references such as the individual banking institution and country.
