What are the best options for your transfer from Switzerland to Japan?

We found 12 options to send money to Japan from Switzerland.

To transfer your to a bank account in in Japan, the cheapest option is currently TransferWise, with 5.33 CHF for the transfer fees and a competitive CHF-JPY conversion rate (their current exchange rate is 1 CHF = 115.732 JPY).

The total cost of your transfer with TransferWise is 5.48 CHF, in comparison you would pay a total cost of 42.09 CHF (which is roughly 8x more expensive) if you wanted to use Currencies Direct to make the same transaction.

Two other money transfer providers worth considering for your transfer are Xendpay and PostFinance.

If the person you're sending money to wants to receive in cash in Japan, then the cheapest option is currently PostFinance, with 6 CHF for the transfer fees and a very competitive CHF-JPY exchange rate (currently at 1 CHF = 113.8952 JPY).

Adding the fees and exchange rate margin, the total cost for a cash transfer with PostFinance is 12.7 CHF, but you would pay a total cost of 18.88 CHF if you chose to use Banque Cantonale Vaudoise to make the same transfer.

Hi! I'm Pascal and I am in charge of making Monito as helpful as possible for you. Don't hesitate to drop me a line if you have a question, if you need help to understand the results or to find the best operator for your transfer.

Questions you may have

Yes. We only list money transfer operators or banks that are fully authorized and monitored by the regulation authorities of the countries where they operate.

Before each international money transfer, you should come and compare the costs of the different options on Monito, as they may have changed. Once you fill out the above form and click on compare, you’ll see a list of all the options to send money between two countries. The cheapest option is at the top, but you may want to consider other criteria such as the speed of transaction or the pay-in or pay-out methods.

Of course! Banks are usually not the best way to make international money transfers. The fees can be quite low (and sometimes even zero), but beware of the poor exchange rates which banks often apply. We list as many banks as possible in our results, so do compare to find out if you’d be better off switching to another bank or a specialized money transfer company.

Monito is not a money transfer company. We’re here to help you find the best way to send money abroad. Just tell us which country you’re sending money from and which country you want to send money to, and we’ll show you a list of all available services. Once you select the best one for your needs, you'll be redirected to their website to get started with your money transfer.

As much as we try to have complete information and to include as many money transfer companies in our results, we sometimes miss a few. In this case, the best solution would be to write us a short message to let us know what’s missing!
