Moving Your Money Abroad
With the most competitive exchange rates in the industry, Anglo Pacific can offer you international money transfers with total transparency – the rate you see is the rate you get!
- No hidden fees
- No transfer limits – transfer what you want when you want it
- Transactions guaranteed to clear within three working days
- Speed service transfers guaranteed clearance within one working day
Our payment facility is available 24-hours which means you can register within minutes and log into your personal account at any time of day or night.
Another benefit of choosing Anglo Pacific money transfers is that we offer your first transfer free of charge. We simply remove all transfer fees from your 1st international transfer!
We also offer a loyalty rewards programme for both new and existing clients whereby every 5th transfer is free! All you have to do is use our money transfer service as usual and our system will remove all transfer fees for every fifth transfer you make.
With no transfer limits, Anglo Pacific lets you transfer what you want, when you want it. Once you deposit the funds, we purchase the foreign currency and transfer the converted funds into the overseas account of your choice.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to how our international money transfers work:
Before you transfer your funds you will need to complete an online registration form. You will then receive a confirmation email, which lets you log into the system.
For anti-money laundering purposes, you need to submit the following:
- a copy of your passport and a signed and dated address document (utility bill or bank statement) before you make your first transfer
- You must sign your documents yourself
- For amounts over £10,000 (or currency equivalent), no fee will be charged, but we will require proof of funds (bank statements, pay-slips or sales of assets).
2. Transferring funds
To transfer funds all you need to do is log in to your online account and follow the on-screen prompts.
Make sure you confirm details of the transfer, such as:
– destination and details of the recipient you are transferring funds to
– overseas account details of the recipient
3. Confirmation of online payment
If you are not paying with a debit card, you need to send confirmation of deposit to Anglo Pacific for the transfer to go through.
4. Confirmation of transfer
You will receive a confirmation email once a transfer is complete. If you live in the UK you will also receive a text message.

Our exchange rates fall between the inter-bank rate, which is the ‘truest’ exchange rate there is, and the rates offered by high street banks and Bureaux de change. To get the most competitive rates possible, we continually canvass the market on your behalf, adding a small margin to the rates before passing the benefit of that rate on to you.
The rate commonly represented in the media is the interbank rate, which is the rate that banks trade with each other. This rate is often misleadingly displayed by banks – Anglo Pacific will only quote rates that we are legally permitted to offer our clients.
Anglo Pacific can transfer your funds to just about any destination, with the most popular countries being Australia, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa, Canada*, the USA* and Eurozone countries. If your country is not listed on our website, please give us a call and we will see what we can do for you.
*Receiving fees may be charged by receiving banks in these countries.
At the moment we can only transfer money to South African credit cards.
Once we have cleared the funds and processed your documentation, we will transfer the converted funds into your overseas account within three working days.
There is no minimum or maximum limit to what you can transfer.
We accept debit card and internet banking payments. If you are using internet banking, your name and surname need to be used as the reference for your payment. If you do not supply us with these details, you will need to email us proof of payment.
The easiest way to transfer money is to use your debit card on our website. To do this, you will need to enter all banking details and transfer instructions yourself on our website. This way, you have complete control over the transfer.
If you have chosen internet banking as your preferred payment method, you will need to complete two stages for your transfer to be processed:
- Upload the transfer instructions onto your profile
This will indicate how much, when, and where you want the funds to be sent. Once you upload the transfer instructions, our client holding account details will appear.
- Log in to your internet banking account and transfer the amount to our client account. Use your name and surname as your payment reference.
If you are using internet banking, always enter your name and surname as the payment reference so that we know that the funds are from you. If the funds clear under a reference other than your own, please email [email protected] to inform us straight away.
Absolutely not. We charge a flat fee only.
We charge no receiving bank fees when you transfer to the UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Poland and Eurozone-based accounts.
Anglo Pacific is required by law to monitor unusual or suspicious transactions should we have reason to believe that the money is related to any illegal activity. We keep full records of all transactions, together with the copies of identification provided. We will not process any transaction where this information is withheld. Proof of address and proof of funds may be required in certain cases. Please contact us if you require any further information.
Anglo Pacific’s Money Transfer Portal uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL), 128-bit encryption to protect your transaction details. 128-bit encryption is the latest and strongest data encryption technique commercially available for securing information between clients and our website.
SSL works by encrypting/scrambling data from our website to your computer. The data is encrypted on our web server and can only be decrypted/unscrambled by the person with the correct decrypt/unscramble key. Once you have logged in the Money Transfer Portal you can then verify our site’s use of SSL in two places, by the use of “s” in https in the address bar of the site, and by the padlock in your status bar in your web browser.
