How do I transfer money to the UK?

The easiest way to send money from your home country into the UK bank account is by electronic transfer.

To do this the bank in your home country will need:

  • Your UK bank’s name and full address
  • Your name as given on your UK bank account
  • Your UK bank account number
  • Your UK bank sort code

Money can also be transferred using a banker’s draft.

This is a document drawn up by the bank in your home country and sent to you by post. You present the banker’s draft to your bank in the UK. Before you transfer money ask what charges will be made by the bank and how long it will take

Make sure that you keep copies of the relevant documents in case there is a dispute with the bank in the future.
