Can I deposit a check from a foreign bank or issued in foreign currency?

Yes, we accept checks drawn on a foreign bank or issued in foreign currency. Simply take it to your local U.S. Bank branch to be deposited.

Please be aware of the following important information:

  • All checks are subject to review. If the item must be processed on a collection basis, U.S. Bank will disclose additional fees prior to assessing. See the Foreign Check Collection section of the Consumer Pricing brochure for potential fees.
  • Additional fees assessed by foreign banks will be deducted from the check proceeds.
  • Exchange rate adjustments will apply on each item at the time of processing.
  • Funds will be made available when they’ve been received from the foreign bank. This process could take six (6) weeks or longer.
