    So this always happens? How many days in your experience does it take to send from HangSeng to BDO Unibank?

    I have never sent via swift from HK so no idea. As I said it has happened twice out of several times and in both cases there was an error on my part.

    nothing to do with distance, more to with banks efficiency and operating hours,

    if the amount sent is considered a "Covered Amount" then probably some additional documentation is needed from the sender...might be the cause of delay.
