Payments may be delayed or services may not be available because of certain conditions associated with the transactions – such as the amount sent, the destination country, availability of currencies, legal requirements, proof of entitlement, opening hours of the agencies, different time zones or a combination of several factors. The maximum amount that can be sent is CHF 8,500 or the equivalent in local currency per person per transaction per day. Transactions may not be split. Senders and recipients must present valid proof of their identity (passport, identity card). Occasionally and irrespective of the amount involved, additional information and documents pertaining to the transaction may be requested.
