Want to wire money to Samoa? Considering a bank wire to transfer money to Samoa? Before you walk into your financial institution to do it, make sure you check the wire transfer fees. It may come as a shock just what the fees and charges will be and depending on the amount of the wire, it might not be worth sending the money by bank wire transfer to forward the money by other means.
What can make it even worse is in addition to your bank adding a fee for sending the funds to a place in Samoa, the recipient receiving the transfer of funds will most likely also be charged a fee at their end. A way to minimise the possibility of this charge is to remit the international wire transfer in the currency of their bank account.
To process a bank wire transfer to Samoa, you will possibly require a SWIFT code. These are different for each bank and are based on things including the individual banking institution and country.
