Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

International debt recovery refers to the process of collecting outstanding debts from foreign debtors. This involves tasks such as tracking down debtors, conducting negotiations, and utilizing legal systems to ensure the creditor get back their owed money.

It’s a systematic approach that involves identifying the debtor, contacting them about the debt and confirming the underlying trade, negotiating and arranging repayment. If the debtor fails or neglects to pay, legal action can be taken. The process can vary based on the country or region and the efficiency of the jurisdiction.

Some challenges include different languages and cultures, different legal systems and regulations, difficulties in locating the debtor, tracking the collaterals and currency conversion fluctuation.


The length of the process depends on several factors like the response of the debtor, legal complexities, and the country involved. It can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months or even years.

Currency exchange rates can affect the value of the debt. Fluctuations (i.e. devaluation) may cause further distress if the underlying trade was contracted in hard currency, such as USD or EUR.
