If the foreign bank has a SWIFT* code, we can wire funds from your account directly to the foreign bank. If the foreign bank does not have a SWIFT code, we must have the information for a correspondent bank located in the USA to process the wire.

What is a SWIFT Code?
The SWIFT (Society for World-wide Interbank Financial Telecommunications) system is a computer-based message switching system used by most international banks as a method of making overseas payments. The SWIFT code is 8 or 11 alphanumeric characters long and is the international standard for uniquely identifying a financial institution. The SWIFT code is also known as BIC (Bank Identifier Code).

PLEASE NOTE: To wire funds out of your account, additional ID verification and authentication is required. Additional information may be required at the time of the wire request.

Please visit any one of our four branches to complete your wire transfer or feel free to call us at (559) 732-8892 with any questions.
