Positive wire transfer experience

I would just like to share my experience with the wire transfer in RSD because I see many of you have had a lot of problems with it.
First of all some details This transfer was made at Banca Intesa using my DOMESTIC account (tekuci racun). I think this is where a lot of people are making a mistake because they are getting the wrong information from their banks about their IBAN number. Most employees at the bank branches are not very familiar with these kind of payments and will most likely give you an IBAN number that is connected to your foreign currency account which is of course wrong since you want to withdraw RSD not USD. I had the same situation when I went to my bank branch but was suspicious of the IBAN they gave me so I called the main office of the bank in Novi Sad and they explained it to me better.
So what I did is this: when setting up a wire transfer account you type in the SWIFT code of the bank you got from the bank and then when you go to type in the IBAN just type in the number of your domestic currency account (tekuci). You can find it on your debit card just don't use the dashes I did it like this and got my money fairly quickly considering I made a withdrawal just before new year. All in all it is a very cheap way of getting your money, the commission was in total 200 dinars (on a withdrawal of around 160$) plus the wire transfer commission I would have payed if it wasn't the first withdrawal. I hope this will help people get their money more easily and those that had trouble using this method.
Best regards and a merry Christmas
