I would like to transfer money from Argentina into Chile.
Usually, within countries, there are safe ways of physically (i.e. without a SWIFT or other wire) and inexpensively transferring money between accounts without cash. For example, marking a cheque as Account Payee, so that the money can only be moved into that account.
Is there a safe way to do something similar internationally, but without electronic means such as SWIFT or Wire Transfers? (I found that electronic means are quite expensive)
Do such cheques exist? Are there similar alternatives?
It's ok if, like with national cheques, the money is ultimately transferred or credited electronically behind the scenes, as long as it is made available immediately and there is no 1-7 business days wait as with SWIFT transfers.
