Hi, has anyone sent a reasonably large amount of money to the uk, ie say 200K dirhams, how did you do it? the daily transfer limit with hsbc seems to be 24K only.. confused.

Be careful with the exchange rate and the fees that HSBC charge, I send money home each month, though not 200k, I find the best rate and cheapest fee is using Al Rostamani Exchange. They have a branch in MOE near the Cinema but I have no idea what their transfer limit is.

Listen........

Put it all in small denomination notes in a black breifcase, and i'll meet you at the 4th bench from gate 3 in Safa park at 8.30 sharp this evening. The codeword will be "Sparrow". I'll have a black briefcase with me, with a reciept in it. We'll exchange passwords, and cases, but not names. Deal?

The limit for money transfer at HSBC is around 160k. I donīt know what the fees are for international transfer, for domestic it is 40AED.
BTW: if you send AED to your home bank, then the exchange rate is calculated from that bank not HSBC!
