An Inward Telegraphic Transfer (also known as an “Inward Wire”) is an electronic transfer of funds directly credited to your account from an overseas remitter. In most cases a telegraphic transfer is the quickest way to receive funds from abroad (a telegraphic transfer will normally take four business days to be credited to your account, although this can never be guaranteed).
The remitter should send the funds in their own currency, and Western Union Business Solutions will convert them into Australian Dollars before forwarding to Heritage for credit to your account.
