Question by Catty2007: How long does it take for a bank wire money transfer to arrive?
My fiance-to-be is trying to send me money from his bank account in England to my bank account in the USA to pay for a visa application. After about 3 tries, and all sorts of problems with Swift codes, etc. they said it went. Since his is a small bank and my bank in the US is small and not international either, they said it would go through Barclay’s in the UK, then somewhere else he thinks (New York I think) and then on to my bank. It also wasn’t cheap and was a huge amount of trouble. We are desperate for me to receive this money quickly, because I need it to pay for the fiance visa application. They didn’t seem to be too sure at my bank, they said I would probably receive the money in around 2 to 3 days. Help! I’m going nuts! Has anybody else had this experience, especially between the UK and the US?
