Question2:
李艾莉
Just wondering what needs to be done to transfer money from a bank account in Taiwan to one in the states…??
Has anyone done this before? What did you have to do?

Answer:
Dennis Dz
You’ll need your passport or ARC, the receiving bank account number, SWIFT code, and possibly international routing number. Pretty straight forward.

李艾莉
OK great! Thanks! It’s just fill a bit of paperwork, right?
Do our Taiwanese bank accounts have SWIFT codes? I’m sure they do but just asking just in case…

Dennis Dz
You shouldn’t need a SWIFT code from your account here, you shouldn’t need any info from your account here, or at least I didn’t. I went to the BOT on Daye just east of Liming, 2nd Floor, and there’s a woman who speaks English well there.

李艾莉
I know, I was asking about the Taiwanese bank account SWIFT code for a completely different reason…but thanks!

Dennis Dz
Yeah, they should have them.

Ken Peterson
Yes they do

Ken Peterson
If you want to transfer money to Taiwan from somewhere else the bank can give you the codes you need

Ken Peterson
Remember there’s a cost in both ends for a transfer, the Taiwan bank can’t tell you how much the US bank will charge either but it’s pretty cheap on the Taiwanese side

I read where someone suggested using Taiwan Western Union. They said if you do it online there is no fee. I can’t find the blog post where I read it, and I’ve never done it, but it sounded like a great idea if it’s correct.

Ken Peterson
Fees pretty cheap on the Taiwan side 200-400 nt

Rebecca Bishop Leggett
ok, found the post about Taiwan Western Union http://jsphfrtz.com/taiwan-western-union/

Ken Peterson
Looks good but where does the money go to , from US bank to Taiwan bank? Or to a western union local , let me k ow how it works out for you if you try

Ken Peterson
Now I pay 860ntd per transfer, regardless of amount , 200ntd in Taiwan and 20usd in the states
