There is an option available within Global View called "Global Transfers". Upon selecting the Global Transfers option;
Step 1 - The customer can use drop-down lists to select the country of the account they wish to debit and credit (only countries that are part of Global Transfers will appear in the lists and you can not select the same country for debit and credit)

Most currencies that are already available via internet banking are available for selection using this service. The majority of currencies will also allow for 24x7 real-time transfers. However, there are a small number of currencies that can only be traded on-shore due to local regulatory restrictions, and although these currencies will still be available for selection, transfers in there may be a short delay in processing these transactions. For the Philippines, transfers from a Philippine Peso account to a foreign currency account will be restricted.
So long as the account is linked to the same Global View profile and has been identified by the account owning country as being able to send or receive transfers, you will be able to use the account within Global Transfers. You cannot send money from or to an account that is either not linked through Global View or belonging to an entity that has not launched the Global Transfers service. Only accounts that belong to the same person can be linked together through Global View.
Yes. A USD 7 or its foreign currency equivalent will be debited from your "Transfer From" account for each transfer made.
