My bank just told me that the old data for filling out an international money order for paying the student fees isn’t a valid one. So, if you’re still using
Recipient: Sampo Bank
IBAN: FI 838 000 127 066 774 5
your money won’t reach a valid account because of an invalid SWIFT-Code and recipient.
Naoko Nakagawa, the current International Student Counsellor at the UIAH, (email naoko dot nakagawa at taik dot fi), mailed me the correct data for making your money order work:
“When you pay the student union fee by bank transfer from a bank account outside of Finland, please remember that your bank will charge handling fee. The handling fee depends on the bank, and it can be very
expensive in some countries. So please make sure that you pay enough when you pay by bank transfer. Please also note that TOKYO’s bank also takes about 10 Euro as handling fee when receiving the student union fee if the money is sent from countries where euro is not used. So please make sure
that you pay enough when you pay by bank transfer. Please keep your receipt.
Fee: 48 € (as for spring term 2009) + your bank’s handling fee
Message-field on the money order form: Student’s first name and family name + date ofbirth
