Foreign Exchange Transactions
Media Room



Ameriabank offers its clients foreign exchange transactions, including spot, swap, and forward transactions. FX transactions allow you to buy currencies quoted by the bank at very competitive rates and possibly minimize the exposure to currency risks amidst exchange rate volatility.



  • Where the foreign currency exchange transaction amount exceeds 400,000 AMD, a personal identification document is required. 
  • Online banking allows clients to make non-cash FX transactions. Any transaction for AMD 20 million and above are subject to approval by the Bank. Foreign exchange transactions executed online on business days after 6:00 p. m. and non-business days (including holidays) with the trade value for AMD 20 million and above may be rejected due to volatility of exchange rates on the local and international markets.
  • FX conversion transactions may be also rejected for the following reasons:

                   ✔ The client account balance by close of the business day is not sufficient to execute the transaction,

                   ✔ There is a restriction placed on the client’s account (Compulsory Enforcement Service lien or any other encumbrance),

                   ✔ If the amount to be converted is equal to or exceeds 5,000 (five thousand) US dollars or its equivalent in other currencies quoted by the Bank for physical entities who do not have accounts with Ameriabank,

                   ✔ If the amount to be converted is equal to or exceeds 200,000 (two hundred thousand) US dollars or its equivalent in other currencies quoted by the Bank. For transactions exceeding this limit special contractual rates can be applied, different from standard published rates of the Bank,

                   ✔ Other

  • If a foreign currency exchange transaction via online banking is rejected, the client is notified about the reason.
  • Purchase and sale transactions are executed in Chinese Yuan only with legal entity clients provided that respective documents are available. 
  • Foreign currency exchange transactions are free of charge.
