Making Saudi Money Transfers

Bank Details Required

You will need the following information to make a money transfer to Saudi Arabia:

  • Beneficiary name
  • Account Number
  • Swift Code
  • Bank name

Transfer Time for Saudi Money Transfers

Saudi money transfers are usually received the day after transmission. If you are using a currency company for sending money to Saudi Arabia, you should find funds arrive the next day after you have settled in sterling with your provider. In some cases Saudi 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 Saudi Riyal exchange rates for more information, or you may be asked to make payment to Saudi Arabia in US Dollars - either way you can save money by using a currency broker in the UK - just complete your details at the top of the page and we will put you in touch with one.


There may also be a small charge made by the receiving bank, to process and credit the payment to the Saudi 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.
