Personal Checks Honored Overseas?

Quick question -- does anyone know if a personal check, or a bank cashier check, would be honored by a foreign bank? In this case it would be sent to someone in Asia.

I assume so (though I imagine it will take a while to clear), but thought maybe someone on here might know for certain one way or the other.

No. It's Person A with a US bank account writing a check to Person B in a foreign country.

Or sending a cashier's check.

This isn't offshoring of funds or anything. It's also an absurdly de minimis amount of money, so nobody wants to incur wire fees or anything.

My father in law sent his driver in Mazatlan a check last year that took several weeks to clear. Since wire fees are out of the question, maybe a travelers check?

But don't traveler's checks have to be signed by the same person that bought them?

The delayed clearance isn't that big a deal. With a Cashier's Check it should go a bit faster. That's probably the right route then.

I've done it in Germany, but they gouged the hell out of me.
It was something like ten bucks for the foreign transaction.

Go to the post office and get then send an International Money Order. They should be able to cash it at their local post office. Cost is $3.85 for up to $700

Not sure which countries accept this though...

Can't they just setup a damn paypal account?
