We have a service that allows our customers to send money from their GBP UK Bank account to their CGD Bank account in Portugal (in GBP or in EUROS).
If you still don´t have the instructions to use this service, please contact our Personal Banking Team by email to
firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on +44 20 7280 0250.
This service is free and is for electronic GBP transfers only. We recommend using your UK online banking system or mobile banking.
We aim to ensure your CGD bank account will be credited within three Portuguese working days after receiving the funds from your UK bank account.
This service is designed to be fully automatic and efficient. You can do it via e-banking transfer, standing order (except from Natwest Bank) or a request to your GBP bank.
Please be aware that ALL THE TRANSFERS/STANDING ORDERS received without the correct REFERENCE NUMBER, will be sent back to the Bank account of origin.
Almost all Banks have a limit up to 10.000,00 per day when you do a transfer via your e-banking system (online or mobile banking), above this amount usually you have to request the transfer directly with a branch of your UK bank, although the method is the same.
Please note that the exchange rate to be applied to your transfer is the rate of the previous working day in Portugal after receiving the funds from your UK bank account.
