HBL acted like 65 years old grammy, when handling Upwork payment, they ask to many questions and do not understand jack, they will have no clue what upwork is, what freelancing is, why would a company send payment to individual in Paksitan, they will force convert your payments into PKR that gives them additional Rs, 6000 over the $30 wire transfer fee and +$25 third party bank charges
HBL was a good way to waste Rs. 12000 over a payment of $1000
You have other cheaper options to share? USD to USD is not an easy option to chose as govt. had imposed a loads of taxes on Foreign Currency Accounts.
