How long can it take for a transfer to reach my account?
The transfer time frame mostly depends on the country where the sender’s bank is located, and the payment instrument used by the sending bank to process the funds. Check here for more information.
What if the timeframe has passed, but the funds haven’t been received?
If you haven’t received the money within the time frame specified in the app for the relevant currency and transfer method, check with the sender that they’ve used the correct account details.
Ask them to check the following:
It’s worth double-checking that the details on the transfer confirmation fully match your account details in the app.
For example, if you have local GBP account details for a GBP transfer, check if the sender used them instead of the IBAN. If the transfer was sent to local account details via SWIFT, it’s likely to fail and return to the sending bank. If there’s an additional wallet reference that should be included, have a look if it was actually added to the correct payment reference field without any typos or additional symbols.
For failed transfers, sometimes the amount is not credited back directly to the sender’s bank account immediately, but the sending bank might have received the funds in their system.
How can Revolut help me locate the funds?
If you would like our support team to help you with your expected transfer, fill out the form below, attaching transfer confirmation.
Transfer confirmation can usually be generated in your online banking portal. The sender can generate it in the online portal and also contact their bank directly for it.
The confirmation should contain:
If you’re expecting an international transfer, please send us SWIFT payment instructions, also known as MT103, a formatted message exchanged between banks that contains all details of the expected transfer including its unique tracking ID.
This information is essential for us to run necessary checks in the system and help you.
The sender can ask their bank to trace the funds as well. ‘Trace’ is a standard procedure conducted by sending banks to help with this.
While our support agents will always help as much they can, only the sending bank can effectively investigate these issues, as they have full visibility of the transfer journey end-to-end.
