    Getting ready for a trip? Let us help.

    Using your UBT Visa debit card to make purchases and access your funds while traveling is easy. Here’s a bit of helpful information to keep in mind:

    • Your card can be used anywhere Visa is accepted in the United States and abroad
    • You can get cash from any ATM with your card; however, a $2 ATM usage fee may apply for non-UBT ATMs
    • A fee of 1% of the U.S. dollar amount of each ATM/Visa Debit Card transaction made in countries outside of the United States will be added
    • If you’re planning a trip, call us beforehand to put a note on your account so we know it’s you using your card from afar

  • International Wire Transfers

    International Wire Transfers

    Send and receive money safely and easily

    Sending and receiving money from home shouldn’t be a hassle. We’ve broken down the process into a few easy steps.

    Receiving money from home

    1. Come to the branch and fill out a Wire Instructions card.
    2. Snap a picture of the completed card with your phone and send it to your family.
    3. Once we receive the wire info from the sending bank, we can put the money into your UBT account.

    Sending money home

    Sending money to your family back home is even easier: Just come to the branch and provide a few pieces of information, including the personal information of the person receiving the money (name, physical address, and bank account number) and the information of the bank receiving the transfer (name, location, and swift/BIC number). 

    Hint: Including a detailed reason for sending or receiving a wire can help speed along the process. Example: money for tuition, money for school expenses, etc.
