Hopefully you’ve done the following things from our Part 1 of this article:
1) Downloaded the application form from the GoLloyd’s website.
2) Mailed your application & copies of your passport and address card.
3) Received your GoLloyds welcome materials
Let’s take a look at your welcome packet. Inside you should have received the following things:
- Registration Letter showing all of your bank details
- A furikomi card/passbook or a help letter- Furikomi just means domestic money transfer
- A copy of your original application
What do we do with this stuff? Well, I think the best way is to show you, step by step.
There are two ways to do this. Method one: Show your letter to a staff member and have them do them do the confusing parts for you, or Method two: Do it Yourself.
Got it? If you don’t understand Kanji, don’t worry. The wonderful thing is that you don’t have to know how to read any Japanese. Showing the bank attendant the pre-printed letter from GoLloyds, will give them all the information they need to help you successfully conduct overseas transfers. I’ve done it this way countless times, and only now do I feel confident enough to handle these transfers on my own.
Good luck, I know you can do it!
