To a non-HSBC Account
If you want to transfer fund in HKD to a HKD account in a bank other than HSBC, please click here.

Express Transfer
This is the quickest way to effect a transfer during service hours. Normally, funds transferred to a non-HSBC account will be credited to the recipient's account within two working days and only a small service fee will be charged. But if you need to transfer fund urgently, you may choose "Express Transfer".

Set up an International Transfer
If you want to transfer money in foreign currency to an overseas bank, you will need to click here to set up an instruction.
