Bank account

Attention, since Georgia is not within the ‘Single Euro Payments Area’ (Sepa), in order to transfer funds from an European account, it is possible you cannot rely on your «internet banking», if you are used to do so, and that in this case you have to address to your bank directly. However, unless your bank is able to transfer funds outside Sepa for less than 1% of the amount, we suggest to use www.transferwise.com. By this way, you will be able to transfer funds from your European bank account, to the European bank account of ‘Transferwise’, and they will do the international transfer for you against a fee which could be one order of magnitude lower than the standard bank fee for operations towards countries not belonging to Sepa. The system is clever, and eventually we can provide you with further assistance in using it. Finally, if you prefer not to use your credit card on the Internet, please contact us at istitutoculturaitaliana@gmail.com and we will discuss alternative ways of transfer, like Western Union, Moneygram, or if possible a direct Iban of an European bank account.
