* The Incoming Foreign exchange remittance administrative fee (the handling fee) is an amount equivalent to 2,000 yen. However, the handling fee for "Shinsei Platinum" and "Shinsei Gold" customers will be virtually free of charge because 2,000 yen will be returned to them by the end of the following month. Foreign currency-based handling fees are determined so that they are equivalent to 2,000 yen. The fees are reviewed regularly since their amounts translated into yen change due to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates.

If the handling fee is paid by the sender, no handling fee will be charged by Shinsei Bank and therefore cash-back program will not apply.

Procedure

The Cash-Back program is unlimited and will apply to each incoming remittance.
