Inward money transfers

Receive money from abroad into your HSBC UAE account

The easy way to receive money from your home country or region

When you transfer money from your home country or region to your HSBC UAE account, you can request your bank back home to transfer the money in the currency of your home country or region.

 

HSBC UAE can then make the currency conversion at our competitive exchange rates1. We also offer preferential exchange rates for our HSBC Jade and Premier customers.

 

You will need to compare the exchange rates offered by your bank back home at the time of your transfer with HSBC exchange rates, before choosing the currency in which the transfer is made.  When you choose AED as the transfer currency, your bank back home will make the currency conversion for you.
