Want to send money to Yemen? Are you considering a wire to transfer money to Yemen? Before you go your bank to do it, be sure to check the wire transfer fees. It may come as a shock the amount the charges 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 worse is in addition to your bank imposing a fee for sending the funds to a place in Yemen, the person getting the funds will probably also incur a fee from their bank. One way to minimise the likelihood of this charge is to send the international wire transfer in the currency of their bank account.
To make a bank wire transfer to Yemen, you may need a SWIFT code. These are different codes for each financial institution and based on things such as the country and individual bank.
