Had a small sum of remittance USD xxxxx.xx which was donated into my account via Maybank. But it is not cleared for withdrawal because it was withheld by BN according to the bank officer. Already 3 weeks. :mad:

Not straight forward nowadays to receive foreign currency deposits.

Fastest way is electronic transfer but interestingly, Malaysia is not in the country lists for one major US bank.

My USD cheque took 6 weeks to clear ...

Maybe the amount is too small. If you send billions, will go through instantly
