FAST payments to move riel quickly

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I made a FAST transfer today from a VisionFund (Riel) account to a Sathapana (Riel) account. It was obviously the first time the staff in the Toul Kork branch had to exercise the process. They had at least heard of it. It took 3 of them 30 minutes of random keyboard tapping, phoning a friend, filling in forms, photocopying forms, reading the operations manual and general sitting around. They didn't know how soon the money would appear in the destination account.

Remarkably it was already there 30 minutes later when I checked at an ATM :-) I won't be rushing to test any of the other combinations at my disposal but was pleasantly surprised by this one.
