Foreign exchange conversion rates & bank fees

For overseas payments, issuers (banks) and payment regulators (NPCI) set the foreign exchange conversion rate. Banks charge a fee to convert the denominations to Indian currency.

Check your issuer’s guidelines for foreign exchange conversion rates and bank fees on foreign transactions.
