    Japan Only

    There are two ways to donate from Japan:

    1. Via international monetary transfer at your bank (bank details below), OR
    2. You may prefer to use TransferWise (considering the extremely high transfer fees)

    If you have a Japanese bank account, you may set up an account on TransferWise and designate us as a business recipient. TransferWise charges very low fees for international money transfers, and our members in Japan have had success in sending their conference registration and membership fees this way. This is probably the cheapest and most convenient way to transfer money to Korea from Japan. If you choose to do this, you can send your payment to either our USD account (see below; we use a standard exchange rate of 1 USD = 1,000 KRW) or our Korean won account. 

    To designate KOTESOL as a business recipient in TransferWise, you’ll need our bank address, KOTESOL’s registered address, and our treasurer’s email address (treasurer@koreatesol.org):

    It will take a few days for you to create a personal TransferWise account and provide the verification needed (I believe they send a letter to the address listed on your new account). After TransferWise verifies you, you can transfer money to us easily and cheaply.

    Please feel free to contact treasurer@koreatesol.org if you have any problems or questions!
