IV Bill Payment

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has paid their IV Bill other than with a cashier's check or money order purchased in the US? My husband got the necessary US$380 money order from a USPS office before he came to Singapore to be with me but now the fee has gone up to US$400 so that won't do anymore. The instructions say "drawn on a US bank". Do you know if I can go to a bank here in Singapore and get a bank draft which is drawn on a US bank? Eg Citibank or a Singapore bank with a US affiliate.

Thank you!

get a Moneygram money order.

thanks for your reply. i googled "moneygram" as i am not familiar with it and contacted a moneygram office here in singapore. unfortunately, for some reason, moneygram offices in singapore only carry out wire transfers and do not sell money orders. :(

has anyone actually purchased a money order or bank draft from a bank outside the US which is drawn on a bank in the US and sucessfully paid their bill?

You shold be able to remit a money order from Citibank since they are US based and fulfill that requirement. You should be able to contact the US consulate there if you have any doubt.
