No. of Prokens Required: 1 |

Document Preview:


This is a request for the transfer of Documentary Credit from the original Beneficiary's account to a new Beneficiary according to the terms of the original Documentary Credit. The Documentary Letter of Credit was issued by a Bank for a Beneficiary (Seller) on request by an Applicant (Buyer) as a payment mechanism used in international trade to provide an economic guarantee for parties from a creditworthy bank.

This letter requests for the transfer of Documentary Credit which must be done according to the terms of the original Documentary Credit. All Letters of Credit require the Beneficiary to present a draft and specified documents in order to receive payment, hence the name "documentary credit". The most common scenario for a Letter of Credit to be issued is where two parties enter into an agreement or a deal, and they do not know each other’s credibility well enough. This request will ensure that the transfer of the documentary credit is enforced.
