How long will it take for my LKR to arrive?

We can transfer your LKR the same working day, if we receive your payment by 8:45 am.

(Occasionally we might need you to supply additional documents, which can affect the transfer time. But we’ll keep you informed every step of the way.)


Do you limit the amount of LKR I can send?

No. Some FX companies limit the amount of LKR you can send or receive.
We give you the freedom to send as many Sri Lankan rupees as you like.


How can I pay for my LKR transfer?

You can pay by bank transfer.


In case you were wondering...

What is a SWIFT code?
The SWIFT international payment network is used to send and receive electronic payments (also known as wire payments). It sends payment orders between banks using SWIFT codes, so banks can transfer money quickly, reliably, and securely.

SWIFT code format: AAAA | BB | 11 | 222

AAAA – represents the bank (for example, Barclays is BUKB)

BB – represents the country where the bank is located.

11 – designates location of banks main office.

222 – code for the bank branch.
