SWIFT code intermediary bank in oDesk

In oDesk when output to account enter the 11-digit code of his branch of the savings Bank. oDesk gives the name of the Bank correctly, but States that he still needed a SWIFT code for the intermediary bank. The first time I see this. What do you mean?

Clarify: your SWIFT code I know for a long time and still no problems with it was not. But the intermediate Bank is asking me for the first time. In their help, we are talking about local currency as opposed to US dollars, say, intermediate Bank need if you want to receive in dollars. But my account is already in dollars, it works flawlessly that way for five years, in roubles I to can't (and I have no such desire). To support them, of course, wrote, but you know this support...

Solution
These are international rules. And no matter what the expense in dollars in Russia in the course of the RUR, and hence the correspondent Bank is necessary.

List of correspondent banks Sberbank Google is very simple, is on the website is slightly more complicated (choose the right) or turns on a piece of paper in the Bank.
You live and learn. Thank you, kind person :) - orlo93 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:18

wire transfers in the United States are conducted between banks, which are registered and have representation in the United States.

In Your case, however, Sberbank has representative offices in the United States and accordingly may not be connected to the wire transfers of the Federal reserve system directly.

Correspondent Bank — a Bank-resident of the United States in which Sberbank has an account. Correspondent Bank having some sort of agreement with Sberbank transfers money in the savings Bank.

If I remember correctly, intermediary bank (in Russian the correspondent Bank) is needed, if your Bank is not directly connected to the SWIFT or is not entitled to such operations. In the case of Sberbank think are out of date, leave blank.
Leave blank does not work — says that the Bank needed an intermediary. - orlo93 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:24
Only recently interested in the Bank. The correspondent Bank is necessary (and in the case of the dollar must be in USA). You can omit it, but the money then can go through another Bank with additional fees. - orlo93 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:27
