How can we help?

When will the money reach my Revolut account?

Your Revolut account balance will be updated once a transfer has reached your account. 

In general, all of our transfers are very quick. However, depending on several factors, like the transfer details and currency chosen, your transfer may take slightly longer to reach your account. 

You can use the below time frames to estimate when a transfer should reach you: 

  • HUF local details:You’ll usually receive the funds the same day if they were sent before the cut-off time – usually within minutes, but occasionally up to two hours later. Transfers made on weekends, Hungarian holidays or outside of bank hours will be received the next working day. In Hungary, the cut-off time is before 10 pm CET. Payments received after this time are processed on the next working day. For transfers above 10 million HUF after 4pm CET, the transfer is expected to arrive on the next working day.
  • GBP local details: this usually takes one day, but it may take up to 3 working days depending on how the sender’s bank processed the transfer. 
  • Faster Payment usually takes a few hours to receive 
  • CHAPs takes a bit longer but should arrive on the same day 
  • BACs, often used by employers to pay salaries, can take three working days to receive 
  • EUR local details: when transferring EUR from a bank in the SEPA area, the transfer may take up to two working days.
  • SEPA Instant only takes a few seconds (check here if the sending bank supports SEPA Instant transfer)
  • For all other cases, you’ll need to use your SWIFT account details for the respective currency account, and the transfer might take up to five working days.
  • Key points to remember:

    • Some banks don't process transfers during weekends and bank holidays
    • We can’t accept transfers with incorrect recipient details, such as account number typos
    • All banks and payment service providers are required to run checks on your payments to comply with regulations, which may cause delays

    The timeframe should be calculated from the moment the transfer was actually sent out, not from the moment the transfer request was submitted.
