International Wire Transfers Instructions

Outgoing Wire Transfers

For funds to be sent the same day, outgoing wire transfer forms must be received before 11:00 am (Pacific Time), and all address fields must be completed.

If this transaction is not completed in person at one of our branches, you may need to include a copy of your government-issued photo identification, such as a driver's license, passport, or state ID.


For outgoing, single or recurring transfers, please click Transfer & Pay>Send a Wire in Online Banking or Wires in Mobile Banking to begin your request.
