I would be moving to the UK this week for work and staying at a hotel for the first 2-3 weeks while I search for an apartment. I have already signed up for Monzo and had it delivered to a colleague’s address.
By the time my UK payroll gets set up and I have an address proof for the high street banks it’ll be almost a month. I wanted to transfer some of my savings from my home country to Monzo so that I could pay for the first month of expenses including the security deposit, etc.
What is the easiest way I can transfer money from my current account in India to my Monzo current account? (I came across A mention about using Transferwise and an IBAN but nothing very comprehensive.) If someone could a share a dummy’s step by step guide to doing this, it would be very appreciated.
Thanks in Advance.
PS: I will be setting up Monzo as my salary account. I hope not to need a high street bank account at all.
