Things you should know

When sending money to someone for the first time through internet banking, to keep you safe we will ask you to authorise the transaction by generating a one-time transaction code on your physical 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.

  3. Select the account from where you want to make the payment

Important notes

1We cannot guarantee that the exchange rates offered by HSBC UAE will be better than those offered by other financial institutions at the time of transfer.

2Live foreign exchange rates are refreshed every 90 seconds at the branch and in online banking and 120 seconds in Global View and Global Transfers during international weekdays (Monday-Friday). On international weekends (Saturday and Sunday) or when the currency markets are closed, live foreign exchange rates are not available and the rates will remain unchanged until the next international working day.

3If charge type "all charges to be paid from my account" is selected, the corresponding bank will not deduct any of its charges from the remittance amount and there will be no money transfer fee by HSBC UAE for transfers of Indian Rupee to India, Pakistani Rupee to Pakistan, Egyptian Pound to Egypt and Philippine Peso to the Philippines. There may still be correspondent bank charges payable by you.  Our Schedule of Services and Tariffs, as amended from time to time, will apply.
