How long does it take to receive a transfer?
Updated over a week ago

The time it takes for a SEPA transfer to be executed depends on the issuer's bank.

Standard SEPA transfers

Within the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA), standard transfers are typically completed within 24 to 48 business hours.

Instant SEPA transfers

Instant SEPA transfers are processed in just 10 seconds.

The maximum amount for an incoming instant transfer is €100,000.

If you're expecting an incoming SEPA transfer and haven't received it after 48 business hours, we recommend that the sender contacts their bank to request a proof of transfer. This document is useful for verifying the entered information.

⚠️ A so-called immediate transfer is not an instant transfer. It is treated as a priority. It will be executed the same day, but remains standard (24 to 48 hours for receipt).

Please note:

⚠️ Your Qonto account cannot receive treasury/VSOT transfers. The rejection of a VSOT transfer may result in up to €30 in fees.
