Use the WWT function in your online banking acct. However, do note that there are 2 charges involved

1. Outward Remittance by HSBC (waived off for premier acct holders till end Mar 18)
2. Incoming Remittance by your overseas acct (Depends on your acct overseas. Higher tier bank acct holders might be able to get waiver)

I was charged USD15 when I transferred to my USA Citi Acct. Still waiting for my interests to credit. As such, no comments on the feasibility.

there should also be a Corresponding / Agent bank fee which is unknown at point of remittance

is the USD 15 referring to the agent fee ?

u r right that both outward/inward remittance charges are/can be waived.

The USD15 was charged by the overseas bank for the incoming remittance, which in my case is USA Citi. My guess is that already included the agent fee.

I was charged euro17 for incoming remittance to europe bank under OUR. Outward remittance and any agent fee are waived for premier until end of this month. Can ask hsbc to waive the receiving bank fee?

The bank only can waive it own fees and charges, mean the bank not earn this fee. But Agent fee and receiving bank fee are 3rd party charges, if bank absorb it mean the bank need to pay it on your behalf. Don't think can waive.

Didnt try to get hsbc to waive the receiving bank fee. Dont plan to try as my remittance amt was not significant.

Anyway,does it make sense that hsbc will help? Since the charges are from another bank and not from hsbc.

if u remit to HSBC Premier or DBS Treasures accounts in HK, the inward fee will be waived by HSBC HK & DBS Treasures ... as stated in their Schedule of Fees

Agent/Correspondence Bank fee cannot be waived ... I estimate around USD 15
