HSBC Bank Middle East Limited (the "Bank") is required to act in accordance with the laws and regulations operating in various countries around the world relating to international sanctions. Under these sanctions requirements, the Bank is prohibited from engaging in certain transactions. The Bank would only process transactions that are in compliance with applicable sanctions.



Did you know, when transferring money, you can choose who pays: you, the receiver, or you share the cost?

 

Every time you send money to someone, different types of fees are involved which may or may not apply:


•   Transfer fee
•   Exchange rate
•   Intermediate bank fee
•   Receiver or beneficiary bank fee


If you decide to pay, you’ll be responsible for your bank’s and the intermediate bank’s fees (if applicable), on top of the transfer amount and exchange rate. So the person you’re sending the money to will receive the full amount (minus, if any, the receiver’s bank fee).


For example, if you transfer a $1000, a $10 transfer fee as well as a $20 intermediate bank fee will be deducted from your account. The person you’re sending the money to will receive $1000, minus any charges (if any) from their bank or the intermediate bank.*

Best For Internation Transfer

If you choose to have the receiver pay, your bank will deduct the transfer fee and the intermediate bank fee from the transfer amount. The receiver will then receive the transfer amount minus the transfer fees, intermediate bank and receiver’s bank fee (if any).

So if you transfer a $1000 , the receiver will receive $970 - which is the transfer amount minus your bank transfer fee of $10 and the intermediate bank fee of $20, if any (The receiver’s bank may charge a fee)*

Best For Internation Transfer

If you want to share the cost, your bank will deduct the transfer fee directly from your account. However the intermediate bank’s fee will be deducted from the transfer. So if you transfer a $1000, then the receiver will get $980 which is $1000 minus the intermediate bank’s fee of $20, if any. (The receiver’s bank may charge a fee) *

*The amounts of the charges mentioned in the example are only for illustration and may vary depending on the bank/ exchange house involved.

How HSBC can help you:
HSBC gives you the option to choose who pays the fees, by selecting one of the below charge types:

•   BEN if you want the receiver to pay
•   OUR if you want to pay
•   SHA if you want to share the fees with the receiver

If you choose OUR, HSBC will let you know the exact charges to be deducted before you confirm your transfer.

 

 

Did you know it’s often faster and cheaper to transfer money to the same bank abroad than to any other bank?

 

When you transfer money from a bank in Bahrain to a bank in another part of the world, normally up to three banks may be involved; your bank, the intermediate bank and the receiver’s bank.

Best For Internation Transfer

So it could be faster, easier and cheaper to transfer money locally and internationally between the same banks (instead of different banks), because an intermediate bank isn’t involved.

Did you know exchanging money at airport terminals can be more expensive?

 

When you exchange money at airport terminals, exchange rates are more expensive because of additional business costs and a slightly higher margin is usually charged.

 

 

How HSBC can help you:
HSBC wants to make sure you get the most competitive currency exchange rates. If you don’t leave it till the last minute, you can drop by one of our four convenient branches in Bahrain to exchange your money before reaching to the airport.

Did you know if you transfer money before 11am Bahrain time, there’s a better chance it will get there the next day?

 

During weekdays most major currencies’ cut off time is usually between 11 am – 1 pm Bahrain time. A two hour margin is advised in case there is any missing information needed or discrepancies that need to be solved before the transfer takes place. Hence if you make your transfer before this time, there’s a better chance of it being processed on the same day and therefore received the next day.

 

How HSBC can help you:
HSBC want to make transferring money as convenient as possible, by offering you three channels to transfer money through:

1.  Personal Internet banking accessible anytime and from anywhere, with a transfer limit of BHD 20,000.
2.  A network of four branches across Bahrain. (For the location of our branches and CSUs, please visit http://www.hsbc.com.bh/1/2/bh/personal/ways-to-bank/branches.)
3.  24/7 call centre (Arabic and English), just contact us on 80001900.

 

 

Did you know that online transfers are faster and cheaper?

 

Online transfers are often faster and cheaper because it reduces the probability of errors and gives the customer a notification on the spot. This reduces the time of the transfer being rejected or returned which cuts down on processing time and reduces cost. Additionally, it is easy and secure.

 

 

How HSBC can help you:
You can manage your finances effortlessly with HSBC Personal Internet Banking. It allows you to send money transfers anytime. You can either send a one-time transfer or set up regular transfers. What’s more, you now get live exchange rates online*.

Did you know that withdrawing money at an ATM overseas is usually cheaper than exchanging money at the airport before travelling?

 

When you exchange money at airport terminals, exchange rates are usually more expensive because of higher business costs and a higher margin which is often charged.

 

If you withdraw cash from an ATM abroad, you will be charged a withdrawal fee and a margin on the exchange rate.

 

When you use your debit/ ATM card to withdraw cash overseas in the local currency of the country of withdrawal, you transaction is subject to the following charges:

 

– Withdrawal fee
– A foreign currency exchange rate
– A percentage charge on the exchange rate

 

If you decide to exchange currency directly when you are at the airport, you will not get the same exchange rate when you withdraw money from an ATM.

 

How HSBC can help you:
HSBC debit cards are accepted at over one million ATMs around the globe. In addition, HSBC is present in 80 countries.
