Andrew and Adele and the rest of their team at WB Forex are simply amazing. The service they provide is excellent. They make you feel like you are a VIP customer - treating every single one of my requests with speed and efficiency. Immigration is a stressful process and they make the money and forex side of things so much simpler. Thank you!

I have always received the most efficient personalised service from the team. I would honestly recommend WB Forex as the leading company to use to transfer funds! Thank you again to the team as always!

The Team at WB Forex is not only professional and knowledgeable but also friendly and helpful -nothing is too much effort and if you are like me that had lots of questions, the time was taken to explain everything in a way that I was more than comfortable to use their services. Setting up my new account was simple and I was kept advised as to progress and was notified as soon as the new account was opened. There has not been one hiccup with the transfer of any of our funds - and we have had multiple transactions. I have compared the forex rates quoted by WB Forex to major SA banks and they are in line making the 8250 flat fee payable per transaction very attractive. Thank you especially to Adele for being so patient. Five stars are actually not enough...
