I'm applying for a visa. The embassy insists on receiving the visa fee by way of a bank draft made out in $HK.
It should be from a bank with a connected bank in Hong Kong.
My bank only does bank drafts in US dollars or Euros. I've tried the Post Office and various high street bureau de change. I tried a few big banks including HSBC. I tried Thomas Cook.
Nowhere seems to offer the service. It's really frustrating that the stumbling block is a £25 fee, I'd happily pay 4X that if they'd just accept the money and other way!
Google just comes up with adverts for different ways of sending money. Everywhere I ask they send me to another high street shop or bank, none of which actually do it.
