Bank transfer to Colombia

Within 24 hours

Bank transfers:

If you'd like to send your money via a bank transfer, the great news is that transfers to Davivienda, Bancolombia and all major banks can credited the very same day. 

Important: Please check that the person you are sending to in Colombia has activated the Abono Automático so they can receive international bank deposits. Please click here for more information about Abono Automático. Please note that you can only send to personal, non-business accounts and that the name you provide for your recipient must match exactly as it appears with their bank.

Sending to other Banks:

Transfers to your own account: Senders will be required to complete an authorization form and to provide their valid Colombian Cédula ID. The name on the ID must match exactly as it appears on the account. This process is only carried out once per year.

Transfers to other recipients: Due to local regulations, please note that our local partner in Colombia is required to speak to your recipient by telephone in order to receive transfers into their account. Please provide the best local number where your recipient can be reached for this call. If your recipient is unable to accept the call at the time they are contacted, they may call 572-551-3536 (Ext. 8000, option 2). This process is only carried out once per year. Please note that you can only send to personal, non-business accounts.
