Banking question

Hi All

I am pretty new to life in Switzerland and have just been informed that my first months pay has been transferred to my UK bank account. Would anyone be able to tell me how long I can expect that to take?

Thank you in advance.

From instant to 3 working days depending on the instruction. Get a local bank account.

Depends on the type of transfer they used.

Within the hour for the fastest method, within 2-3 days for the slowest.

Re: Banking question

My employer directs my pay to accounts in UK, France and Switzerland. (Don't ask, it's a long story).

The money is always in all three accounts on payday, like clockwork.

If I transfer money, it typically takes 1 day to Switzerlnad, 2 to France, and 2-3 to UK.
