how long do bank wire transfers take

While banks require that you submit your wire transfers during their business hours, OFX operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The company you choose to make your money transfer
With OFX, you won’t be left guessing if your money was transferred correctly, and you can rest easy knowing that you’re using a secure and speedy system whose focus is getting your money to its destination in the shortest amount of time possible.

Typically, an international wire transfer could take anywhere from 2-5 business days with most banks.
Our global network of banks allows us to transfer money overseas securely and quickly, so if you’re sending from Australia to the U.S., we can often offer same day delivery.* Most other major currency transfers may arrive within 1-2 days (from the time OFX receives your funds).
Here’s how it works:
You register with us and use our online form to submit your recipient’s details.
We know how important it is to keep track of where your money is and when it arrives at its destination. That’s why you can log in to track the status of your transfer or use our mobile app to keep an eye on your money, and if you have any questions, we’re just a phone call away.

Depending upon your recipient’s country, it generally takes 1-4 business days to complete the entire process of receiving your funds and sending them to your recipient.

Wiring money is secure and simple, but when you use the right service, like OFX, you can be sure that your transfers will be swift too.
