My experience: for incoming international wire, these days all banks charge $10 - $15 to the recepient. The only way they would waive it if you have a special account, usually requiring a minimum amount kept on the account ($15,000 for example). For these types of accounts, they waive incoming wire fees. Now, when you receive an international wire to a US bank account, that usually comes through several banks, and they can charge for handling the transfer, too. If the branch of the bank you have your account with does not accept international wires directly, only through its headquarters (in NY, for example), the NY HQ can also charge for the transfer (around $25 in some cases) and that is not waivable because the branch has no control over it, they can only waive their own charges.
