Things you should know

When sending money to someone for the first time through online banking and the HSBC UAE app, to keep you safe we will ask you to authorise the transaction by generating a one-time transaction code on your Secure Key. This is a security step that verifies your credentials. It also increases security against possible fraud attacks which can be potentially caused by malware.

Penalties and Fees may be applied if there is a customer error or omission in providing correct or incomplete remittance information and may cause a rejection of, or delays in, the transfer. We shall not be held liable for any potential loss.

The actual time to complete a transaction may differ from estimates due to increased scrutiny of transactions by the financial institution or entity providing financial services to the beneficiary of remittances.
