We don't have sort codes here. You will just have an account number.

Assuming you have internet banking with your UK account you simply set up an online transfer. When you get the various online options you select the one to tranfer to an international bank, input the bank name, the account name and the account number.

It is really very straightforward and should take approx 3 days.



NB. To be able to do online transfers out of your HSBC account you have to specifically apply for that facility. The forms are in in any branch and online.

Regular transfers back to UK

Hi,

I have been advised by Lloyds in the UK that I should set up an International Account and then a Dubai Account.

I will be transferring about £800 a month back to my UK account and they have said that I can transfer money into my International Account from Dubai twice a month free of charge and then from my International Account into my UK account as many times as I like, free of charge. I think there is a charge for the International account of about £10 a month.

Is this the best way to do things? or would it be better/cheaper just to transfer from my Dubai account straight into my UK account?
