Send or transfer money to Uruguay

Want to wire money to Uruguay? Are you considering a wire to transfer the money to Uruguay? Before you visit your bank to organise it, be sure to check the wire transfer fees. It may come as a shock the amount 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 send the money by other methods.

What can make it more expensive is in addition to your financial institution adding a fee for sending the funds to a place in Uruguay, the individual receiving the transfer will most likely incur a fee at their end. A way to minimise the likelihood of the fee is to send the international wire transfer in the currency of their bank account.

To make a wire transfer to Uruguay, you may require a SWIFT code. These are different codes for each bank and are based on things including the individual banking institution and country.
