Payment types

What payment could be simpler! To make a transfer, all you need is a phone number — you don’t need to know someone’s bank account number.

  • You can make payments to phone numbers which have been registered to the Bank of Latvia Instant Links Registry.
  • The payment commission is the same as for payments made to an account number. EUR transfers are commission free for C card users within the European Union.
  • Citadele customers can easily register their phone number in the Bank of Latvia Instant Links Registry using the Citadele app (under More > Settings > Instant link).

Instant payments are Euro transfers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year including bank holidays.

  • Transfer up to 15 000 EUR (legal persons - up to 100 000 EUR) instantly to other Latvian banks or to more than 1900 European Union banks.
  • Make instant payments through the mobile app or online bank.
  • A successful instant payment reaches the recipient’s bank account in just 10 seconds.
  • If the recipient bank cannot accept the payment as an instant payment, or if it requires additional checks to process, the instant payment may be rejected and instead processed as a standard Euro payment within the European Union.

If you make regular payments of a fixed amount, for example, for electricity, leasing, internet, rent or television, you can entrust Citadele with paying them.

  • Set up a regular payment, and the bank will ensure the payment is made from your account to the recipient with set regularity.
  • Regular payments can be made both to Citadele accounts and other Latvian banks.
  • You can set up, change or cancel regular payments in the online bank for free.

Escrow account

If you are planning a significant transaction and want to reduce the risk that the other party does not fulfil its obligations, set up an escrow account. When you use an escrow account, you ensure that money is paid for the transaction only once the other party has fulfilled their obligations.

  • Complete real estate and other transactions.
  • There may be an increased commission fee if there are more than three parties involved in the transactions; the agreement must be prepared in another language; the account needs to be opened urgently; or the standard terms and conditions are changed per the customer’s request.
  • When submitting an application to set up an escrow account, it must be signed by both parties.
  • Send your electronically-signed application for an escrow account to, or fill in a free-form order through the online bank and attach the application as an attachment. You can also submit an application in person at any Citadele branch.
