The speed of transfer
The speed of transfer for International Outbound Transfers is Same-Business-Day. This means that funds will be debited from the sender’s Bank of America account on the business day that the sender initiates the transfer, and that Bank of America will send the payment out on that business day. The recipient’s bank typically receives the funds 1-2 business days later, which will then be credited to the recipient within 2 days.
However, Bank of America exonerates itself of any disruption in the transfer due to the failure of another financial institution to act in a timely manner. Bank of America will trace your transfer if the recipient has not received it in 3 weeks, and charges a $25 fee per transfer trace.
