Transfer money from TEB bank to UK bank
 
Hi.

I have sold our apartment in Altinkum and wish to transfer the money back to the UK, this is held in the TEB bank in Altinkum.
Can anyone suggest the easiest way please or will I have to move to say HSBC and do it that way?

Thanks in advance.
Wayne.

hi...arrange a baks transfer from bank to a lawyer in uk....that means a transfer can be followed.....get a transfer number from your lawyer or bank and take it to your bank iin turkey...then transfer a small amout ..ie ..1000 pounds and wait and see how quickly it transfers...and how safely...then if it was me i would break the money up and transfer over a window of time...each transfer is around 25 pounds sterling....hope this helps..liam

Hi Liam.

Thanks for this.
I don't know whether I trust the TEB bank, have you had any experience with these at all?
Also is it possible to to get a debit card to use in the UK?

I used garantee bank to transfer money from uk to turkey...it took around 4 days....via instanbul...i think it takes longer to make sure you dont owe money or money launder....

i suggest you carry money through customs...as long as you can show that you have withdrawn it from your account in turkey,then they shouldnt have a problem....


I suppose you could pay money to a debit account....but you need to get the actual number and most importantly..the transfer number.... but i would transfer a small amount first...to make sure it goes through with no hitches....then i would tranfer another amount....but also take cash to uk in your pocket....make sure you take the max amount..as if you turn up in uk and get stopped,then your cash may be taken from you until you prove its legal....either way...if i were you i wouldnt rush things.....

You can transfer money from a Turkish bank to the UK all you need are the account numbers iban number and of course your details. There will be a small cost should take three to four working days. Do not take large amounts through customs read the regulations. Now is not a good time to transfer from TL to sterling as the exchange rate is not to your advantage

Hi Wayne

Have you thought about using a specialist deliverable FX broker? If you wanted any help just ask and I can PM you my direct number in the UK. I work in the Industry just so we're clear :)

just get an internet banking with teb and send it from there. with entering your uk bank details.
as with internet banking you can open account
you can buy / sell gbp and most of other currencies
transfer money anywhere in the world in any currency.
and its a lot cheaper as you are doing it yourself.
thats how i do most of my bank works...
hope this helps regards

Hi - I have internet banking with TEB - if I want to send say 5,000 to my UK account do I just get it put into my TEB GB account and make an EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer)?

Will I need my UK Account IBAN number as opposed to account no: & sort code?
