4.0 Meaning of Remittance
The word “Remittance” originates from the word “remit” which means to transmit fund. In
banking terminology, the word remittance means “transfer of fund one place to another”. When
money transferred from one country to another is called “Foreign Remittance”. That means
foreign remittance is the transfer of foreign currency from one country to another country.

Parties involve in remittances:

Four parties involved in remittance:
 Remitter: One who initiates, or requests for a remittance.
 Remit tee: A reemit tee is also the one who receive the payment.
 Issuing Bank: The bank that sends or affects the remittance, through demand drafts,
telegraphic transfers, or Mail Transfers.
 Paying Bank: The branch on which the instrument is drawn.

4.01 Types of Account for Foreign Remittance

When a Bank maintains a Foreign Currency account with a foreign Bank abroad the account is
called NOSTRO account. NOSTRO account means “our Account with you”.

Example: If Meghna Bank Limited maintains a US Dollar account with American Express
Bank, New York, and then it is a NOSTRO account of MGBL.

When foreign bank maintains a convertible taka account with a Bangladeshi bank or with its
branch in Bangladesh, the taka account is called VOSTRO account. VOSTRO account means
“your account with us”.

Example: If American Express Bank and New York maintains taka account with the help of
MGBL then that taka account is a VOSTRO account for MGBL. What is the NOSTRO account
for a bank in a particular country is a VOSTRO account for the bank abroad maintaining the
account thus the account of MGBL with Standard Charted Bank, New York, regarded as its
NOSTRO account held with Standard Charted Bank, New York. While Standard Charted Bank,
New York, regards it as its VOSTRO account held for MGBL.

21 | P a g e
When two Banks maintain two NOSTRO accounts with a same foreign Bank in abroad, then
one Bank’s NOSTRO account is LORO account for another Bank. LORO account means “their
account with you”. Account maintained by third party is known as LORO account.

Example: MGBL & Agrani Bank both maintains a NOSTRO account No I & 2 respectively
with American Express Bank New York. Then NOSTRO account I & 2 are LORO account for
each other.

22 | P a g e
Fund transfer from one country to another country goes through a process which is known as
remitting process. Meghna Bank Limited has 42 domestic branches. The bank has “NOSTRO
Account” with a foreign bank Standard Charted Bank,New York. Bangladeshi expatriates are
sending foreign remittances to their local beneficiary, through that account.
• Now, the Bangladeshi expatriates will contact with Standard Charted Bank to remit fund to
• Then Standard Charted Bank will credit the “NOSTRO A/C” of MGBL and send the message
through SWIFT.
• Next the local bank’s Head Office international division will receive telex message and the
TFMD will record the advice and generate the advice letter to the respective branch of the bank.
• The branch will first decode the test, verity signature and check the account number and name
of the beneficiary.
• After full satisfaction, the branch transfers the amount to the account of the beneficiary and
intimates the beneficiary accordingly.
• But sometimes the complexity arises, if the foreign Bank has no “NOSTRO A/C” in which
country where the expatriates want to remit fund. Then the Foreign Bank has to take help of a
third bank who has “NOSTRO A/C” with intended Bank.

remittance officer makes sure that the remittance is received on account of the customer from
the head office. After that the officer matches the identification/pin code and receiver details.

mentioned. In that case the customer has to submit the mentioned I.D to receive payment. Many
