Hi there, I live in NY and I have a house mortgaged in a Caribbean island. I am inquiring about the cost to transfer money from here to an account there. And if it is possible, do I need to have an account established at your institution to do so? Thanks.

Thank you for reaching us on TD Helps, Cherese.
In order to send an international wire transfer, the funds would need to be deducted from an open and active TD account.
We offer many different types of Checking accounts. Prior to opening an account we encourage you to view and compare our checking accounts, visit http://bit.ly/Wczmq0 or check out our Checking Selector Tool http://bit.ly/1vW1xnU for help selecting a checking account that is the best fit you. We also recommend taking a look at http://bit.ly/1hzzhPT for more detailed information on each particular Savings Account available at TD Bank. You may find it helpful to check out our customized Savings Selector tool, found here: http://bit.ly/1sxY9Rd.
There are several ways to open an account with us: online, over the phone, or in person. The documents that you will need to open the account are the following: Your Social Security number and ID (driver's license, State ID, or Passport).
To open an account, you may apply Online by visiting www.tdbank.com. To make a first deposit online, you may use a debit card linked to an account from another financial institution, a credit card (Visa or MasterCard) or you can stop by your local TD Store to make a deposit.
To open the account over the phone, you may call us directly 24/7 at 888-751-9000 and you will have up to 30 business days to make your initial deposit.
Finally, you have the option of visiting us at your local TD Store to open an account. If you choose this option, you will need to make an initial deposit to the account you selected. There would not be a minimum requirement to open the account; however, some accounts have requirements in order to have certain fees waived. We would encourage you to review the link above prior to visiting a Store. For hours and locations near you, take a look here: http://bit.ly/TDStores.
If you are not a US Citizen, you will need to bring two forms of identification with you. One form of ID must be a Non-US passport and the second form of ID you may select from the list below:
- Employment ID with Photo and Signature
- State Issued ID or Driver's License with Signature
- Foreign Driver's License with Photo
- US Employment Authorization card with Photo, Signature and Expiration Date
- College ID with Photo
- Alien Registration Card with Photo
- Permanent Resident Card with Photo
After you've opened an account with us, once the funds are available for use you may schedule an international wire with a Representative at any TD Store. Keep in mind that you will need the receiving bank's wire instructions when you visit. Please contact your financial institution for further details.
There may be fees assessed for the sending of an international wire. Please check http://bit.ly/1cTejgt for any resulting fees.
We hope this helps Cherese and have a good night.
