The transfer amount and handling fees are withdrawn from the remitter’s integrated account or giro account and the transfer amount is deposited into the payee’s bank or postal giro account specified.
A fixed fee of ¥7,500 is charged for handling each remittance regardless of amount.
Please be aware that intermediary charges (such as for correspondent bank services) and account registration fee (for handling by the beneficiary bank) may be deducted from the amount of remittance. The amount of account registration fee varies by bank and account type. Check with your payee for details, if necessary.
In many cases, the remittance will be sent to the intermediary bank within 7 business days from the date of application.
However, if the remittance information is insufficient, additional confirmation is required for the purpose of the remittance, or due to the circumstances of the intermediary bank or the beneficiary bank, a significant delay may occur or the remittance cannot be executed.
Based on the relevant laws and regulations, it may be requested to submit documents to confirm the purpose of the remittance before executing the remittance.
In such cases, it may take some time (in some cases, around one month) to complete the confirmation of the remittance details, and as a result of the confirmation the remittance may not be executed.
