What currencies can I receive from overseas in my SGD Account?

Aspire SGD SWIFT Account Details support receiving money from abroad in the below currencies. These incoming funds will be automatically converted to SGD at preferential rates.

We advise that funds are sent in foreign currencies (and not SGD) to avoid unnecessary fees:

Australian Dollar (AUD) Japanese Yen (JPY)
Bulgarian Lev (BGN) New Zealand Dollar (NZD)
Canadian Dollar (CAD) Norwegian Krone (NOK)
Chinese Yuan (CNH) Polish Zloty (PLN)
Croatian Kuna (HRK) Romanian Leu (RON)
Danish Krone (DKK) South African Rand (ZAR)
Euro (EUR) Swedish Krona (SEK)
Hong Kong Dollar (HKD) Swiss Franc (CHF)
Hungarian Forint (HUF) UK Sterling (GBP)
Israeli Shekel (ILS) US Dollar (USD)


We also accept the following currencies, but not for transfers from their home country*. You can still receive them from a multi-currency account located in countries such as the United States, United Kingdom, and Singapore:

Bahrain Dinar (BHD) Russian Ruble (RUB)
Kenyan Shilling (KES) Saudi Riyal (SAR)
Kuwait Dinar (KWD) Thai Baht (THB)
Mexican Peso (MXN) Turkish Lira (TRY)
Omani Rial (OMR) Ugandan Shilling (UGX)
Qatar Rial (QAR) United Arab Emirates Dirham (AED)


*This refers to situations where the funds are not being sent from the country where the currency originates. For example: Send THB from a multi-currency account located in the UK.

If the sender wishes to send money from abroad in an unsupported currency (eg - MYR, IDR, INR, PHP, VND, and other currencies not mentioned above), please ask them to convert to SGD before sending the funds.

In such cases, the source bank handles the conversion, and no further conversion is needed at Aspire. Only a flat, transparent fee of SGD $35 would be applied for incoming overseas funds in the SGD currency.
