WorldRemit is an online service that lets people send money to friends and family living abroad, using a computer, smartphone or tablet.

It is a convenient, low-cost alternative to traditional money transfer companies that use high street agents and charge unreasonable fees.

Money can be received as a bank deposit, cash pick-up, Mobile Money, or mobile airtime top-up.

WorldRemit’s service is available to senders in 50 countries. We offer transfers to more than 110 destinations across Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and the Americas.
