▼ Remittance

As you are aware, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in disruption of commercial activities in many countries. This has also affected banking operations and services in several countries, with banks being constrained to limit their working hours, staffing and services depending on their specific situation and social distancing requirements.

While Bank Muscat and its international partners are fully committed to processing all your transactions as fast as possible, we seek your support to serve you better. To ensure that your remittance reaches your loved ones as soon as possible, it is important to correctly enter beneficiary details at the time of beneficiary registration. This the name, account number, bank codes, and others. This is particularly important if you are registering a new beneficiary now or are making a remittance to a beneficiary after a long time as the information might have changed.

Common challenges observed include beneficiary name not matching with the account-holder’s name at the beneficiary’s bank, incorrect beneficiary account number (for example, use of mobile number instead of beneficiary account number); wrong IBAN number, incorrect contact details of the beneficiary etc. Incorrect details can lead to the rejection of a transaction by your beneficiary’s bank.

You can avoid these situations by re-confirming that the beneficiary information with you matches the details at the beneficiary’s bank. An easy way to ensure the accuracy of beneficiary details is to request the beneficiary to provide their information (in confidence) as it appears on their bank statements.
