The following table offers an indication of the number of working days you should generally allow when making transfers to different parts of the world.

We cannot tell you exactly when the recipient's account will be credited, because this depends on the banking practices of the other country concerned, which can vary significantly from one country to another. However, as soon as the funds are credited they should be available for immediate use.
It may take longer for the funds to be credited if a country or region is affected by events outside of our control such as war, civil unrest, natural disaster or industrial action.
