Repurchases

If I want to make a withdrawal from abroad, what do I need to do?

To request funds from your account, you should submit a notarised letter along with legible copies of two valid pieces of identification (National ID card/driver’s permit/passport). A notary public must notarise all documents.

Your letter should contain the following instructions for a wire transfer to an account abroad:

  • The account holder’s name and UTC account number
  • The amount requested for withdrawal — please advise if the amount includes wire transfer charges
  • Full name and address of the foreign bank
  • Bank account number
  • The ABA routing number and swift code where applicable
  • A telephone contact number and e-mail address

For cheque collection by an individual in Trinidad and Tobago, your letter should also contain:

  • The account holder’s name and UTC account number
  • The amount requested for withdrawal
  • The phrase “Please make cheque payable to (name of person)”
  • A telephone contact number and e-mail address

Please note that a new letter must be issued for each transaction. Wire transfers for cross‚Äźcurrency transactions cannot be facilitated from TT$ accounts.

Please address your letter to:
