How much does it cost to receive money via international wire?

An international wire (or international wire transfer) is an electronic payment service for transferring funds. The wire transfer is international because we are sending the funds in a currency different from your local currency from a bank outside your country. Your bank may charge a fee to receive a foreign currency. Furthermore, if the funds are transferred using an intermediate bank, the intermediate bank may also deduct fees from the payout. Airbnb cannot inform you on how much you will be charged to receive an international wire. In addition, Airbnb is not responsible for any fees deducted during the international wire, by your bank, or by the intermediary bank.

If you would like to receive your payouts via international wire, please enter your local banking information in your payout preferences, even if your bank works with a specific intermediary bank. Our bank will take care of processing the international wire without the intermediary bank information.

For details on your bank's fees, contact your local bank representative.
