    Every wire transfer I've done from US to International has always taken 24 hours or less. Just my personal experience but may vary depending on your bank. 4 Days seems long for a wire.

    Bro if its 4 days then it means you initiated wire transfer on Saturday or Sunday
    and they are not business days
    It may take a week and you will get your payment by the end of week

    or on monday it should not take more than that

    Standard chartered wiretransfers are faster compared to any other bank and you can also check your balance online

    I do some transfers from the US to Mexico and since it is international it takes about 4 business days but the bank states that it is any were from 3 to 7 business days for the money to show in the account, so all I can say is be patient and find out if there is a way to track the transfer.
    Regards

    When I started wiring money from my bank in the US to my bank in the Philippines they told me it could take up to 7 bussiness days. I usually do the wire before 2 PM US time on wed. and by time I get to the Philippines Monday morning it has always been there. I guess 10 or so times I have done it so far.

    Regards

    bank to bank wire should not take longer than 3 business days; however, in many cases intermediary banks are used, so the time adds up - the US bank could communicate directly with a bank in Germany, which then makes the transfer to the largest Pakistani Bank, and only then to your bank

    If that is true then they should perhaps stop calling it a wire transfer. :D

    where are you located? it seems way too much
    international wire transfer (from US to Hungary) takes 1-2 business days, wire transfer inside Hungary 4 hours at most on business days

    It depends if your bank have intermediary bank in USA or somewhere in Europe or not. If they have you can get cash instantly, actually within 1 hour but yeah..., and if they do not have, it can take up to one week, sometimes even more.
