How do I send Chinese Renminbi (RMB, CNY) to China?

The renminbi is regulated by the Chinese government, and therefore, we can only make transfers for commercial purposes to corporations or individuals in China. For that reason, we only send money to China for our customers holding a corporate account with OFX. If you still have questions, call 1-888-966-6888 to speak to one of our team members about your unique needs when sending money to China.

Can I send U.S. dollars (USD) to China?

What do I need to send money to China?

You will need your recipient’s SWIFT code and CNAP code (the 14-digit number that specifies the bank and branch where the account is held). You will also need the recipient’s name, account number, address and phone number. Transfers may take up to 5 business days once OFX receives your funds.

Can I send money from a Chinese bank account to the U.S.?

Yes. If you live in China, you’ll register on our Hong Kong site to transfer money from China to the U.S., but be advised that we can only transfer U.S. dollars from China to the U.S. We cannot transfer renminbi from China to other countries. If you live in the U.S., register now to send money to China from your American bank account.
