Subpart B Remittance Transfers – If a consumer is sending money electronically to a person on a U.S. military base in a foreign country, is the transaction covered by this rule?

Compliance > Regulation E - EFTA
Q:  If a consumer is sending money electronically to a person on a U.S. military base in a foreign country, is the transaction covered by this rule?
 
A:  The rule treats U.S. military bases located in other countries as “states.”  A transfer from the U.S. to an individual or an account located on a base in a foreign country is not an international money transfer for purposes of the rule, while a transfer from the base to a foreign country is an international remittance transfer.
