Wire Payment Instructions for NON-US Institutions

Please provide the following instructions to your Financial Institution for the remittance of Fedwire payments via SWIFT.

Do not use this information for ACH, EFT or SWIFT transfers, as your transaction will be rejected.

Note:  The transfer of funds can only be accomplished by your company going through a U.S. correspondent bank or by having your country’s central bank send a SWIFT telecommunication message (not SWIFT transfer) to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRB), which is located at 33 Liberty St., New York, NY 10045. Any transfers that originate at non-U.S. banks will be rejected unless an intermediary U.S. bank completes the transfer.
