Want to send money to the Seychelles? Considering a bank wire to transfer the money to the Seychelles? Before you walk into your financial institution to do it, make sure you check out the wire transfer fees. It might come as a shock the amount the fees will be and depending on the amount of the transfer, it might be better to forward the money using another method.
What can make it worse is in addition to your bank adding a fee for sending the money to a bank in the Seychelles, the person receiving the funds will most likely also be charged a fee from the bank at their end. A way to minimise the likelihood of this fee is to remit the international wire transfer in the currency of their account.
To process a bank wire transfer to the Seychelles, you might need a SWIFT code. These are different for each bank and are based on things such as the country and individual bank.
