  • The designation of the foreign exchange transaction bank is the basic procedure needed for overseas remittance, which is stipulated in the Foreign Exchange Transaction Act. The effective period of designating for remittances without the submission of supporting documents is between January 1 and December 31 of the year. Therefore, the bank should be designated every year, and remittance should be made by the designated bank.
  • When managing the overseas remittance amount, the “annual remittance amount” implies the accumulated remittance amount by December 31st of the designated year, not for one year after designation.
    However, the amount less than USD 3,000 can be remitted without designating the foreign exchange transaction bank.
  • The foreign exchange transaction bank for the remittances without the submission of supporting documents can be designated online, without visiting a branch.
