[Discussion] Pay a foreign mortgage account from the US (via Wire Transfer)

July 21, 2020 at 10:25PM

I live in the US and I'm trying to pay a mortgage account with Davivienda bank in El Salvador (just a regular, planned mortgage payment). This is the closest post I could find.

The bank sent me instructions to initiate a wire transfer to them. Normally, I'd think this would be an 'international' wire. But their instructions make it seem like it should be a 'domestic' transfer to one of the US banks on the list. Like, maybe Davivienda has an account at each of these US banks? Their support has been unhelpful, as well as my own bank's.

I tried initiating the wire transfer through my bank's website but the options just don't match up. I'm scared to make the wrong choices, since a wire is final.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

I took their PDF instructions and translated it (poorly) below…
