Sending money to the Wallis And Futuna Islands

When sending money to the Wallis And Futuna Islands it’s important to compare your bank’s rates & fees with those we have negotiated with our partner money transfer providers. To get a better deal you should follow these 3 simple steps :

  1. Open an account with a BER reviewed FX provider (id docs may be required)
  2. You specify the local or CFP franc amount you want to transfer
  3. Make a local currency domestic transfer for the requested amount to the provider's bank account in your country
  4. Once your funds are received by the provider the converted XPF amount will be transfered to the recipient account you specify in the Wallis And Futuna Islands.

By comparing the rates of FX specialist providers rates versus your bank's standard rates you can hopefully save around 5% and maybe more - end result is more CFP franc deposited into the recipient bank account in the Wallis And Futuna Islands and less margins and fees kept by the banks!
