Want to send money to Vietnam? Thinking about a wire to transfer the money to Vietnam? Before you visit your bank to organise it, be sure to check the wire transfer fees. It might come as a shock just what the fees will be and depending on the amount of the transfer, it might not be worth sending the money by bank wire transfer to forward the money by other means.
What can make it more expensive is in addition to your financial institution charging a fee for sending the funds to a place in Vietnam, the recipient getting the transfer of money may be charged a fee from their bank. One way to reduce the likelihood of this charge is to remit the international wire transfer in the currency of their bank account.
To process a wire transfer to Vietnam, you might need a SWIFT code. These are different for each bank and based on things such as the country and individual bank.
