AIB accept the following foreign currency cheques from the following countries for negotiation.
|United Kingdom||New Zealand|
|United States of America||Norway|
AIB generally accept foreign currency cheques and international euro cheques for credit to your account on the business day of receipt and where applicable, the relevant currency exchange rate on that business day is applied.
In certain circumstances, foreign currency cheque and international euro cheques may be sent for payment on a collection basis at the Bank’s discretion. A foreign cheque collection is where a cheque is sent directly by mail/courier to the foreign bank on a special presentation basis requesting irrevocable/final payment. There is no standard payment cycle, and your account will only be credited when AIB is in receipt of final payment from the foreign bank. Where applicable, the exchange rate used is the prevailing exchange rate on the date of receipt of funds from the foreign bank, not the date the cheque is sent for collection.
