In case of any unrecognized payment please contact your account manager promptly and explain the details of the transaction including the amount, transaction ID (which can be found next to the transaction in the account details section), and the recipient’s available details.

Can I cancel my payment?

We process your transfer requests at specific times of the day. If you want to cancel a payment you have made, please get in touch with your account manager to assist you with the cancellation of the payment. If the payment is already processed, we can call the transaction back from our correspondent bank.

Can I have a joint account?

Currently, we do not offer joint accounts.
