—When will my fiat deposit arrive in my Bitfinex account?
The processing time on wire deposits depends on how fast your local bank is able to wire funds to our bank. In our experience, five business days is common to process international wires. Bitfinex credits deposits on the same day the funds reach our bank.
— It has been too long; why are the funds not in my account yet?
A delay may happen because of processing at an intermediary bank, or the bank you requested the transaction through has not sent the payment yet.
If a delay in the deposit has occurred, contact Bitfinex Support and provide:
- Deposit ID;
- A copy of the SWIFT MT103 message was provided by the local bank that executed the transfer.
Note: If your bank is unable to provide the SWIFT MT103 message, please ask for Proof of Payment.
