*Changes affecting Citibank Global Transfers (CGT) to India:

Due to a change in policy from Citibank India, effective from 1st February 2016 you can no longer make a CGT to a Citibank India domestic (Savings) account. CGTs to Non-Resident Indian (NRI) accounts are not affected by this change in policy.

Changes affecting Citibank Global Transfers (CGT) to the Czech Republic:

Citibank Czech Republic has been sold to Raiffeisenbank, therefore from 28th February 2016 CGTs to Citbank Czech Republic will no longer be possible.

** Please note: Citi Japan has been sold to Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC) therefore from 1st November 2015 clients will only be able to transfer money through this service if the Citibank account in Japan was opened prior to this date.

You can still transfer money quickly and conveniently to accounts in India or the Czech Republic via an International SWIFT funds transfer. Please refer to our Fee Schedule on the fees and important documents page for more detailed information on fees.
