SEPA transfers take D+1 days, not minutes.  The explanation for SEPA delays can be found earlier in this thread (someone even called their bank to hear it from them), and everyone else are bored by hearing it over and over.  SEPA has been delayed for the same reason since they changed to the Polish bank more than a year ago.
Let's make a bet - 1 BTC - that in 30 days time nothing will change.
Regarding SEPA, yes.  Their  limit will not change until they have completed their registration as a financial institution.

Regarding other fiat withdrawal option, I expect most of their problems will be resolved within a month, and the fastest fiat withdrawal option (except domestic JPY and manual express international wire) to take less than a week before Christmas.  I'm willing to bet 1 BTC on this.

Ok, no one's talking about this so I'll say it. Absent evidence otherwise I think the 5% manual withdrawal option is dead. MTGOX repeatedly missed their promised timeline to process one for me and were very reluctant to allow me to cancel it and get the funds back in my account (though they finally did to their credit).
I have two reports of two successful withdrawals from IRC.  I asked them both to report here so the information would be first hand.  Both wanted to wait until Monday to have the full details of the transfer (e.g. originating bank).

People are quick to complain when their withdrawal is late, and not so quick to report the good news when their money arrive.

Did they have time frames, IE Days, Weeks, a month? Ill take 3rd party hearsay

Here's one case for you. I may be getting a 5% withdrawal on Monday. I will report back soon.

No.  Their Japanese bank offer this manual transfer at a high fee, and you can't send a SEPA transfer from Japan.  You can send EUR as an international wire, of course.

Most probably as you cannot send a SEPA transfer from Japan.

sepa is sort of a domestic batch process for the Eurozone...what I gather from Wikipedia anyway...only 4 years old ,not well implemented yet..similar to ach batches rather than instant wires...might be wrong though

 I see 4 types imagined

domestic batches       (sepa,ach) usually 3 day before batch is processed
international  batches (not sure but pay processors like dwolla seem to fit the descrip) 7 dayprocess?

domestic individual instant wires ( what sepa is trying to implement ,swift) instant meaning same day
international instant wires                         (swift w iban account number) same day by 2pm plus hops

id appreciate any corrections as i'm interested in understanding normal processing time versus the current gox times..thanks

It used to be faster until the beginning of June this year, and could be now as well if MtGox manage to fix their international wire problems.  The limited manual transfer at 5% fee has always been faster.

I don't know if this is good news or bad news, but it is certainly a big WTF regarding Japanese banks..:
Code:
11:05 < sturles> I noticed on the forum that Japanese domestic transfers come
                 from a new bank.  I keep watching for reports of international
                 wires from a new bank as well.  That would be a very good sign.
11:08 <@MagicalTux> sturles, the new bank we use for Japanese transfers is a
                    domestic only bank
11:16 < sturles> Oh. :-(
11:18 <@MagicalTux> they're the first bank we've seen in JApan that can do
                    domestic transfers without the need for faxes
Fax!  In 2013!  For a simple domestic transfer!  Can you even buy fax machines any more?  Must be years since I saw one of those.  No wonder even Japanese transfers were slow during high volume periods.  People still think SWIFT transfers from the same banks are fully automated?

I wouldn't trust a bank that allows to transfer my money based solely on a fax message. Nothing is easier to forge than fax.

Karpeles is taking us for a ride on this one.

How Ripple Rips you: "The founders of Ripple Labs created 100 billion XRP at Ripple's inception. No more can be created according to the rules of the Ripple protocol. Of the 100 billion created, 20 billion XRP were retained by the creators, seeders, venture capital companies and other founders. The remaining 80 billion were given to Ripple Labs. Ripple Labs intends to distribute and sell 55 of that 80 billion XRP to users and strategic partners. Ripple Labs also had a giveaway of under 200 million XRP (0.002% of all XRP) via World Community Grid that was later discontinued.[29] Ripple Labs will retain the remaining 25 billion"

So what?  Online doesn't mean "no fax".  There may be, and probably are, different procedures and requirements for business and personal accounts.  Many online only banks around here only offer personal accounts.

sturle, thank you for your efforts to provide factual and level-headed information.  Regarding this:

Regarding other fiat withdrawal option, I expect most of their problems will be resolved within a month, and the fastest fiat withdrawal option (except domestic JPY and manual express international wire) to take less than a week before Christmas.  I'm willing to bet 1 BTC on this.

I haven't seen any evidence that the international wire transfer situation is improving.  What do you base your optimism on?  Do you have information that isn't publicly known?

Its OK, this is not solely based on fax message.  It is backed up with x.400 out of band confirmation.

I had to use fax for machine parts from New Zealand the other day.  If the Japs like Faxes, so be it.  It should not be rocket science to use a fax, and even to automate things significantly with something like HylaFAX.  The suggestion that Mt. Gox cannot figure out facsimile machines and that is somehow to blame for trouble getting funds to customers smacks of bullshit to be blunt about it.

Wires are high risk for banks, they will often set limits for online wires to help alleviate the risk. Banks are always being targeted for fraud, typically with identity theft and withdrawing through wires.

If you have it set up with your bank there are usually up to 3 ways to send wires.

1. In person - The authorized individual on an account is positively identified and signs the bank's form.
2. Fax - Banks normally have to have an agreement set up before accepting wires via fax. Often the wire request must be on the bank's form. It is also very common to call and verify the wire before it is sent out.
3. Online - Typically some kind of two-factor authorization is required and there will be a limit on number of wires and/or funds sent. If unusual activity occurs, the bank may hold back the wires and verify them with the account holder. Must be set up beforehand.

Any other method is probably not allowed by the bank.

Presumably, due to the nature of their account (money service business), MtGox has tight limits in place with their current bank(s) and others probably do not want to deal with them. Due to the current regulatory environment, most banks are looking to decrease risk from their depository accounts. Money service businesses are very high risk and thus banks are not very willing to work with them.

I don't know if this is good news or bad news, but it is certainly a big WTF regarding Japanese banks..:

Faxed wires are more common then you may think, as are all in one printer/scan/copy/fax machines.  Wink

I don't think anyone here suggested anything like that until you did.  However many people insist that international wires are fully automated in modern banks.  When even domestic transfers are based on signatures on paper, I find it hard to believe that international wires are fully automated in the same banks.  (And I don't know of any bank where international wires are fully automated.)
