Receive Funds from Overseas

Attention: open in a new window. Print

An Inward Telegraphic Transfer (also known as an “Inward Wire”) is an electronic transfer of funds directly credited to your account from an overseas remitter.

In most cases a Telegraphic Transfer is the quickest way to receive funds from abroad (a Telegraphic Transfer will normally take two to three business days to be credited to your account, although this can never be guaranteed).

  How does it work?

The remitter should send the funds in their own currency, and Western Union Business Solutions will convert them into Australian Dollars before forwarding to Orange Credit Union.

  Why should I ask my sender to send money via this service?
  • Better value for you – you are not charged a beneficiary deduct fee, so you will receive the full amount of your incoming payment.
  • Better value for senders – the transaction is completed as a local transfer
  • Peace of mind – you can be confident that their payments are being handled by foreign exchange specialists with reliable systems ready to deliver their payments fast.
  • Wide range of currencies
