I recently travelled to South Africa for SONA scientific conference. Before I left for South Africa; I have to make all necessary payments patterning my registration for the conference here in Nigeria. I thought of different ways to do this. One easiest way that I finally used to register for the conference was to transfer money from my Nigeria bank account to the foreign bank account number that was sent to me for conference registration payment.
How was I able to transfer money from my Nigeria bank account to this foreign bank account number?
Transfering money from Nigeria Bank account to a foreign bank account is pretty very simple. All you need to do is to open a Domiciliary Account. It is very safe and secured. When it comes to transactions that have to do with sending and receiving of money in Nigeria from oversea or from oversea to Nigeria, domiciliary account is the last bus stop. I tried using my bank current account, western union money transfer and my credit card; they all failed me.
So, for the payment of the SONA Scientific Conference I have to open a GTBank domiciliary account.
How did I open the domiciliary Account?
A week before I travel to South Africa for the scientific conference, I went to GTBank in Enugu for my conference registration payment. I tried to pay with my credit card or do transfer payment via my current account but both failed. The customer service advised me to convert my current account to domiciliary account or rather open a fresh domiciliary account.
Right there at the bank, I was given a form to fill for opening a domiciliary account and alongside asked to provide;
2 references who operate current account (GTBank current holder would be preferable, they said), driving license, international ID card, National ID or voter’s card, utility bill and 2 passport photographs for the complete account opening. I filled the domiciliary account form and two days later, I returned back to the bank to complete the registration. I open three domiciliary at the same time- dollar, euro and pounds domiciliary account that will aid all my foreign transactions in nearby future.
How did I transfer the conference registration fee from my Nigeria domiciliary bank account to the South Africa bank account?
After opening the domiciliary account, I pay in the conference registration fee into the domiciliary account but before I was able to pay in the money into the account; I have to convert it to dollar. Dollar is an international accepted currency. However, Gtbank does not deal on changing currencies; I have to visit First bank of Nigeria plc for the conversion.
Remember, there are still other money changing agents you can visit for this purpose.
From my Nigeria domiciliary dollar account, I transfer the conference registration fee to the South Africa bank. In less than 24hours, they phoned; telling me that my payment has been received.
Four days later, I was at the SONA scientific conference in South Africa.
This is how I transfer my conference registration fee from my domiciliary bank account here in Nigeria to South African Bank account. This is one of the surest easy ways to transfer money from Nigeria Bank to Foreign Bank Account. You can transfer money from Nigeria to Ghana, USA, India, Australia, Dubai, China, Malaysia, Canada, UK ; in fact to any country in the world in the same way and it work well in all cases. It is highly secured. You can also transfer money to Nigerian bank from any country of the world in the way, all you need to do is to pay in the money into your domiciliary account wherever you are in the world, come back to Nigeria and withdraw the money.
