    3. Fill in the form, stipulating the bank account where you wish to charge the transaction, the amount of currency you need, and your contact data for the bank to contact you and give you information on how to collect the cash.

    Remember that you can also exchange currencies at your nearest Santander branch to request the transaction. We advise you to carry out the operation a few days in advance of the date of your trip abroad.

    When you return from your trip, if you still have any foreign currency you can exchange yens for euros at any of our branches.

  • Exchanging euros for another foreign currency such as the yen is a transaction you can carry out in Spain, at any bank; or at your destination, through an exchange desk or an ATM.

    If you are making ready for a trip and you need yens, you can exchange at any Banco Santander branch, but the easiest way to do this is to make your request through online banking or the Santander App.

    Whichever method you choose, you should make your request for foreign currency in good time to guarantee availability.
