What if I need to send a larger amount?
As per the anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism policies, if you are sending a large amount of money, you must provide additional information about the transfer. In this case, you must indicate the following:
- Who the recipient is (if they are family, you need to indicate your relationship, e.g. father)
- Why you are transferring this amount (e.g. saving money to buy a property, or helping with expensive medical treatment)
- Where your work and in what position
In some cases, we’d ask you to confirm the information you provided with documents. For example, to present a payslip.
If you are self-employed, provide your taxpayer identification number, employer identification number or any other document confirming your employment status.
Please be thorough when filling out the form. If you make a mistake or provide false details, our officers will have to request additional information from you, which may delay transfer delivery.
