Global Transfers online

With low fees and high security, Global Transfers take the stress and guesswork out of sending money across the globe to 47 countries in 28 currencies.

Low to no fees.

Most Global Transfers cost only $5 (or $15 to special countries). Global Transfers of $1,000-$10,000 to standard countries are free!

Easy online convenience.

Send a Global Transfer at any time from anywhere, from ATB Online or ATB Mobile. Funds are deposited directly into your recipient’s bank account.

Test your transfer for free.

To ensure your recipient’s banking information is correct, send a no-fee test transfer of $15. If the test transfer goes through (in 1-3 days), you can confidently send the full transfer amount.

What you send is what they get.

Confirm your sending fee and see real-time exchange rates before sending your transfer. Know exactly how much money you’re sending—and how much your recipient will receive.

Fast and efficient.

Global Transfers take one to three business days to reach most countries. For special countries, Global Transfers may take up to five days.

FAQs

What do I need to send a Global Transfer?

Already an ATB customer? To send a Global Transfer, you’ll need your recipient’s banking information. They must provide you with: the name of the bank where they want the funds deposited, their account number and routing information. Encourage your recipient to get this information directly from their bank, as countries use different routing formats (for example, ABA routing (US), sort code (UK), BIC (South Africa), etc.). Inputting the wrong one can cause your transfer to fail.

You’ll also need access to ATB Online or ATB Mobile.

Are there fees involved?

All standard and special country transfer fees are laid out in the chart above. If you choose not to send a test transfer and your Global Transfer is deposited into the wrong account because the recipient’s information was entered incorrectly, you may be charged a fee. All service fees are provided up front—simply choose Get a Quote before sending your transfer.

How is the foreign exchange conversion calculated on Global Transfers transactions?

ATB Global Transfers rates are based on real-time foreign exchange rates, including USD exchanges. This ensures you receive accurate, real-time pricing every time you send a Global Transfer. View the exchange rate and currency conversion before sending your Global Transfer by selecting Get a Quote.

What does my recipient need to receive funds?

Your recipient just needs to have a bank account that can accept deposits.

What if my recipient’s country is not listed?

If you’re trying to send funds to a country not serviced by Global Transfers, please contact your nearest ATB branch to determine if an international wire transfer can be sent instead.
