Transferring money from UK Natwest account to Capitec account in SA

As far as I can tell this is absolutely impossible if you are in South Africa because the form validation on the natwest internet banking website rejects the Nedbank SWIFT code (NEDSZAJJ), the capitec SWIFT code (CABLZAJJ) and the Nedbank clearing code (198765 Or 109509).

It seems hard to believe that I am the only person who has encountered this problem. Has nobody else ever tried to use Natwest online banking to transfer money to a Capitec account?

      In the end I used the post office’s international transfer service, but a friend of mine recommended https://transferwise.com so you could try that too. Direct from bank to bank seems to be impossible though.

    employer tried to sent money to me via Natwest Bank to South Africa. But I have to pay R50 000 to Natwest for anti money laundering clearance and registration fee. Can that be possible..

      That doesn’t sound right to me Lizbet… I’ve received payment for freelance work from the UK and I didn’t get charged at all.
