by Anton Van Teylingen | May 19, 2016
  • Whether you’re immigrating, investing offshore or sending a gift to a loved one, we can convert and transfer your Rands faster and cheaper than any South African bank. Read on to find out why we’re the leading money transfer service in South Africa.
  • Fast and simple money transfers

    We know South Africa

    As one of the first independent forex agents in the country, we know exactly what it takes to get your money overseas. Over the years, we’ve developed solid relationships with South African exchange control entities. With us, your money transfers won’t be held back by red tape and will clear without delay. Speaking of speed…

    Faster transfers

    We guarantee that your funds will clear in the designated account within three working days. Banks, on the other hand, can only guarantee the funds clearing in three to seven working days. That is an awfully long time to wait for your money.

    We owe our efficiency to our sophisticated money transfers network and strategic partnerships with UK banks. These systems allow us to get you your money when you need it.

    For an additional fee, we’ll even do a same-day transfer for you. If you need to send cash in a hurry, feel free to contact a broker right away.

    Great rates

    We guarantee that our rates will knock the socks off any rate a bank can offer you. Banks, particularly in South Africa, have a habit of offering less than ideal rates to their customers. With us, the rate you see is always the rate is you get.

    Personalised and comprehensive service

    We pride ourselves on offering each of our clients individual and specific advice. If you ever have a question about our money transfers service, one of our brokers will answer it swiftly and accurately. We don’t have time for call centres, and neither should you.

    The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. Have a look at what our customers have had to say about our awesome service.

    Register with 1st Contact Forex by filling in our online form. You can also email a broker working on our Out of South Africa desk and they’ll sort you out.
