Has anyone else had the message from Revolut stating that it will no longer except local CHF?? Not sure the best way forward sending CHF to GBP?

Hello All, so can I still transfer CHF into my Revolut account using Swift??

Re: Multi Currency Credit Card ["Revolut"]

Are there any fees for topping up with UBS credit or debit card?

Yes you can, you can still top up a Revolut CHF account, the only change is that instead of using the CHF IBAN directly it now should be via Swift (or other ways e.g. debit cards etc).


CHF still works fine, it's only the top up method that has changed due to an IBAN change.

I guess this change is only for the people who are not resident in Switzerland. I still see both local credit suisse account and swift account in my revolut account for top-up.

Re: Multi Currency Credit Card ["Revolut"]

Just wonder if anyone has the same problem that I could not add the beneficiary bank account. So now my money gets stuck with Revolut account.
Looks like Suisse is really an outdated country in terms of e-banking techno.
Revolut block the cash flow in by charging the SWIFT fee, and now blocking the cash out by not allowing me adding other bank accounts.

Afaik no fees are charged, and you can use both for instant top up.

Also when using the credit card the transaction is recognised as "online merchandise" for UBS, so i guess every top up counts towards keyclub points!

I don't think Revolut checks if you actually are a legal resident. Yes they require an address somewhere and an identity document, but not proof of residence.
You could easily register with a passport at an address in a country where you have never lived - legally or otherwise.
