Making New Zealand Money Transfers
Bank Details Required
You will need the following information to make a money transfer to New Zealand:
- Beneficiary name
- Account Number
- Swift Code or Routing number

Transfer Time for New Zealand Money Transfers
New Zealand money transfers are usually received the day after transmission. If you are using a currency company for sending money to New Zealand, you should find funds arrive the next day after you have settled in sterling with your provider. In some cases New Zealand banks may take one extra day to physically clear funds to the final beneficiary account.
Charges and Exchange Rates
The cost of international money transfers can be broken down into 2 sections: transfer charges, and exchange rates. Banks normally charge around £30 for a transfer, and also make up to 4% by 'loading' the exchange rate applied to a transaction.
Both these costs can be reduced by using a currency broker. Usually transfer charges are much less (or free), and the exchange rate should be much closer to the market rate. Please see our dedicated page on New Zealand Dollar exchange rates for more information, or fill in the enquiry form at the top of the page to be put in touch with an FSA-regulated specialist to save money on your transfer.
There may also be a small charge made by the receiving bank, to process and credit the payment to the New Zealand bank account, and/or the routing bank, which is an intermediary used to route the payment through the international banking network to the recipient bank.
