Where can I send this currency?
You'll find a list of countries you can send this currency to when you reach the recipients stage of the sending money process.
In the app, you'll find this drop down list under the Select a country field when you complete the Recipient's bank page.
On the website, you'll find this under the Location of bank field in the Recipient section of the process.
If your country of choice is not displayed in the drop down, it means we cannot send to this country.
What recipient details do I need?
Information may vary, depending on the country it is being sent to. For sending BGN to Bulgaria, we usually require:
- Recipient’s full name (no salutations, initials, joint account names or abbreviations)
- Recipient’s IBAN
- Recipient’s BIC/SWIFT
- Recipient bank’s name
This will be the same for a recipient which is a business.

How long will it take?
It takes between 0-3 days for your money to reach Xe, depending on how you pay for your transfer. Once we receive your funds we make payment to your recipient. From this point, it usually takes 1 - 4 working days for the funds to arrive.
This can vary depending on the recipients bank.
We will send you a notification at each stage of your transfer so you know where your funds are.
