Receive money from overseas with an Inward Telegraphic Transfer?

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 TT is the quickest way to receive funds from abroad (a TT will normally take one-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 Laboratories Credit Union for credit to your account. Funds can be sent in a range of currencies and will be received in Australian Dollars.

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.
