Additional information


What is a Telegraphic Transfer (TT)?

A Telegraphic Transfer (also known as a “Wire”) is an electronic transfer of funds directly credited to a beneficiary’s overseas bank account. A choice of more than 40 currencies is offered - click here for more details. <<link to list of

Why should I use a TT?

  • In most cases a TT is the quickest way to send funds abroad (a TT will normally take one to two business days* to reach the beneficiary), and is a reliable way to send funds to a bank account internationally.
  • Sending a TT in the beneficiary’s currency is usually more cost effective and helps ensure the funds are credited more quickly, as the payment can go “straight through”.


What details do I need to send a TT?

  • You will need to provide full details of the beneficiary’s bank account, including their IBAN (International Bank Account Number) if they are in Europe.
  • To comply with Australian Government regulations you must also provide the beneficiary’s full street address.
  • Please note that TT’s are sent via a network of correspondent banks, which sometimes levy a small handling charge on your payment. Any such fees are out of WAW's and Western Union Business Solutions control. Given that a network of banks is used.
