Local (SCB) Bank Transfer
Most payments by FIG are made locally by remittance to accounts held with Standard Chartered Bank in Stanley. It is the responsibility of the recipient to ensure that correct and sufficient bank details are provided to FIG in advance of the payment.
In certain circumstances, payment may be made on behalf of some government departments in cash. Cash can be collected from the Cash Office subject to the usual opening arrangements. Please allow sufficient time for the payment to be prepared before contacting the Cash Office. Any queries should be directed in the first instance to the government department which requested the payment.
If you are unable to collect cash in person, it is acceptable for someone else to collect it on your behalf provided that they have your written authority to do so and a valid form of ID
In some cases FIG may be able to make payment to a bank account outside the Falkland Islands. Payment would usually be made in GBP but may be made in another currency if agreed by FIG. Please note such an arrangement is only available if specified under the relevant contract or ordinance.
Where payment is made by FIG to an overseas bank account, it is the responsibility of the recipient to ensure that correct and sufficient bank details are provided to FIG in advance of the payment, including the following as appropriate.
- Payee account name
- Payee account number / IBAN
- Payee bank details (bank name, address, contact details, and SWIFT/BIC code)
- Intermediary bank details (if appropriate)
- Correspondent bank details (if appropriate)
- Special Instructions
