5. Conclusion and FAQ

You’re all done, now just sit back and wait for the transfer to reflect in your DBS account

Frequently Asked Questions:
How long does the transfer take?
The transfer typically takes 1 working day in the US to clear. First time transfers may take longer.
Do note that the transfer will be sent by FTX’s bank in the US

What happens if I do not receive the transfer after a few days?
If you’re sure you’ve done the above steps correctly, then patience is key. Transfers sometimes take longer due to heavy load on either bank.

If you are certain that your transfer has been lost, you may contact FTX here. The tracking process usually takes some time (i.e weeks) as the process is very manual.
