How to send money to Russia

If you have a UK based current account, you have two options:

  • Use an international money transfer company

  • Send a bank transfer to Russia, also known as SWIFT

This comparison shows you the costs of using a money transfer company to transfer to Russia.

To find out the cost of sending money through your bank, contact them and ask what their SWIFT fee is.

Here are some reasons why you should choose a money transfer service

What is an international money transfer to Russia?

It is a specialist service that lets you send money abroad without going to your bank.

Most money transfer companies let you transfer money to Russia 24 hours a day. However, transfers made on the weekend are usually processed the next working day.

This is still more flexible than using your bank, which usually only lets you send money during working hours (e.g. 9am - 5am).

How to transfer money to a Russian bank account

Depending on the company you choose, you could:

  • Send a one-off transfer: This is the standard way to send money to Russia, allowing you to send one transfer when you want to.

  • Set up regular transfers: This option could save you money if you plan on sending money to Russia several times over the next 6 to 12 month.

Check with each company to see if they offer these services, then compare the costs between them to find the cheapest option.
