Thread: Sending money to Indonesia

  1. #1

    Default Sending money to Indonesia

    Hi,

    I would like to send some money to my girlfriend. She being in Indonesia, and me in France. My bank asks her Iban and Swift number, but my girlfriend tells me she has no IBAN number. Her bank is BCA in Sukabumi. Do you think it's possible, or she just asked the wrong person?

    Thank you in advance if you can help me..

    Tristan

    IBAN? I have never heard of Iban and I have made several transfers between many many banks. Get a translation, the Swift code all banks have she just asked the wrong person.

    If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague..

    Default Iban

    IBAN means International Bank Account Number

    My girlfriend gave me a SWIFT code and her account number, but my bank is really asking for that IBAN...

    I will ask my bank again because this doesn't seem right...

    Thanks!

    If that is what the IBAN means then I would assume that the IBAN is sorted via the SWIFT code in to the right bank's account and then downward to the personal account of the person. BUt I have never been asked for an IBAN.

    Tristan, je fais régulièrement des virements de France sur nos comptes à la BCA, la BII, ou d'autres banques indonésiennes. Je me sers uniquement du numéro de compte courant et du code SWIFT de la banque, qui s'apparente à l'IBAN que nos banques françaises utilisent. La BCA de ton amie le lui fournira. Tu n'as besoin de rien d'autre.

    Kami harus melakukan sesuai dengan persyaratan dan peraturan yang berlaku untuk Indonesia lebih baik.

    Please, only moderator related questions (and fun stuff) by PM. Kindly post law related questions to the public forum so that answers can help the whole community.

    I already sent from South America to BCA(Bandung-Indonesia) once and more than 10 times to others Indonesian banks , always with the SWIFT code and the NORMAL account number (if did not change , BCA SWIFT is CENAIDJA). I now use Bank Nusantara Parahyangan (BNP) which offer better exchange rates than BCA and no additional fee . Almost 5 years ago BCA used to charge USD5 for each transfer and , if the account is in Indonesian currency (Rp), they immediately exchange the foreign currency to Rp . At BNP , the client has 3 days to allow them to exchange to Rp .
