Hello! I am an expat who owns an apartment in St. Petersburg which I am renting out. I have usually accepted the rent in cash, but since I am currently abroad I asked the tenant to transfer the rent to my bank account (a ruble account at Raiffeisen bank). When he tried to do this however, he was informed that it was impossible for residents to transfer funds to non-residents' accounts. Is this true or is his bank (Sberbank) giving him misleading information? (He gave them the necessary "currency control code").
Dear Andrei,

Thank you for your recent enquiry. We would certainly suggest that you take appropriate financial advice on this, however, to our understanding it is possible for a resident to transfer funds to a non-resident's account. Perhaps a mistake was made by the tenant when completing the payment order documentation. I hope this is of assistance,

Kind regards,
Tamara Ayoub
