Dear all

I'd like you to share your experience regarding wire transfer between Canada (Quebec) and France regarding length of time. I've been waiting for a payment for the last 2.5 weeks. Is it normal? Are there some rules?

Thanks a lot

I can only speak from my own experience of wire transfers from the Netherlands to Canada (Québec), but usually it takes no more than a week (5 working days approximately). I've never done a wire transfer from Canada to Europe, though. Did you check with your bank?

Canada to Poland and vice versa - 2-5 business days.

It happened once that the transfer was returned as the money went out in a currency not accepted by the receiving bank - it had to be US dollars so the transfer had to be sent in US dollars not in CADs.

...2.5 weeks for a wire transfer it's an eternity.

Either the payment has not been sent
There are some problems with the wire (i.e. incorrect information)

I would suggest you to contact the bank and the client.
