    wiring $$

    I know that there have been many posts on this, but I just need an answer to what should be a simple question. I have HK$ to wire back to my Citi U.S. account, and since I don't have a HK bank account yet, I wanted to know the best (quickest & cheapest) was to do this. Also, I am assuming that I won't need more information than is on a check (i.e. acct and routing # for this?).

    Thanks!

    It depends how much you want to send. Western Union will undoubtedly be the quickest, and for small quantities it may be the cheapest too.

    The alternative would be to find any friend who has an HSBC account with online transfers authorised, give them the cash and get them to do an online transfer.

    There is also a small chance that Citibank hong kong might do it for you.
