Transferring Money Internationally

Anyone ever transferred money internationally? I'm trying to transfer it to a BR account and it's asking me for my Local Clearing Code. It's got FW in front of the box for me to enter this code in.

Anyone know what that is?

TIA!

I think that's the code for your local BR bank. You need to call them.

Like the routing number?

They require more info than the routing number and you will have to call the local branch or contact the banks international transfers dept. I suggest calling the hotline over the local branch, usually they are clueless, but then again they might be able to connect you through without waiting. Or they can give you the correct # to call.

When I sent stuff to Europe all the time I had to get the swift code (bank ID in the system) and IBAN number (this was like their routing and acct #)

Also they will charge you a fee to receive the wire ($45 is normal).

And try to check the spot rate when you are on the phone with them.

Thanks. I've done US to Singapore and they asked for the Swift and IBAN like you mentioned, but to go back the Singapore back seems to be asking for something different.

O well, I'll figure it out. Thanks, though!

Yeah, it's essentially the same info I just can't seem to remember what the US banks called it.

If you call their international dept they should give you the info pretty quickly. The problem is the local branch people normally never see this.

You will also have to fill out the standard anti-terrorist paperwork since you are transferring a large amt (over like 7500 is tracked).

Transferring from Dubai to USA, all I need is the routing number for my bank in Louisiana.
