      After receiving your payment, your service provider sends the previously quoted amount in EUR to the beneficiary's bank account.

      You may use your service provider's website or app to monitor the transfer's progress. You may also get notifications via text messages or emails.

      Currency Symbol and Swift Codes

      The euro (EUR) is the official currency of Slovenia. The Slovenian tolar (SIT) was the country’s official currency from October 1991 to January 2007, when it was replaced by the euro. One euro is divided into 100 cents.

      Sending money to a Slovenian bank account requires that you provide the bank’s SWIFT code. The table below lists SWIFT codes of some popular banks in Slovenia.

      Case Study

      Work required Mark to travel to the United States for a couple of years. Since his daughter was in school, his wife decided to stay back in Slovenia with her. During his stay in the U.S., Mark was to keep sending some money back home every month. He knew that several American banks gave him the ability to transfer money to Slovenia, but he wanted to make sure he got the best deal. He compared his alternatives and this is what he found.

      Using the money transfer company turned out to be more cost effective than banks, and it also resulted in a speedier transfer. Besides, the company he decided to use let him lock in exchange rates for up to six months.
