How do I transfer money overseas with WorldRemit?

You will need to register with WorldRemit before you can make a money transfer. Once you have an account, they can store your information to make subsequent transfers easier. This is an online service only, with no agencies to visit or phone transfers.

To make a money transfer, you will first be prompted to choose your destination country and then the type of money transfer you are making. You will then be asked for the amount. Here you have the option of choosing how much you want to make it to the destination, or how much you wish to spend in Australian dollars. In either case they will clearly show you the total cost of the transaction including fees.

You can either pay for the transaction using your own bank account or with a debit or credit card. Cash pick ups and mobile transfers will take place almost instantly, while bank transfers will take anywhere from two to three days. See Worldremit promo codes.

How long does it take to transfer money from my bank to my WorldRemit account?

Please allow up to one to three days for the funds to appear in your account.

Back to top

How can I track my money transfer?

WorldRemit will send your recipient an SMS message once the transfer has been initiated. They will provide your recipient with a transaction number and directions of how they can collect the funds. Additionally, you will also receive an SMS on your phone that will notify you once your beneficiary has received the money.

How much does it cost to transfer money with WorldRemit?

While many banks will charge around $20 or more for a money transfer, WorldRemit’s fees are significantly lower. They will vary depending on the country you are sending to, and in some cases, the amount you are sending.

Below is a snapshot of the fees charged for sending money from Australia to China. Note how they increase as the amount sent does:

Minimum transfer amount and available countries

Unlike some other money transfer companies WorldRemit doesn't have a minimum amount when transferring money out of Australia. This allows you to take care of obligations in other countries no matter how small.

WorldRemit offers an extensive list of 50 countries where money can be sent to from Australia, but not all of these countries will accept funds in the same way. For example, even though El Salvador is listed, when you begin the transaction you are only given the option of recharging mobile phone credit. This is in contrast to other countries, such as New Zealand, where users are allowed to send money via a bank transfer.

There are countries who do not appear on the list at all. This can be due to a range of factors: Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, North Korea, Syria, Vietnam and Belize.

What types of transfers can you carry out with WorldRemit?

There are four different ways in which you can transfer money out of Australia using WorldRemit. Not all of the services listed are available in every country which WorldRemit serves:

  • Bank deposit. Puts the funds straight into a foreign bank account of your choice.
  • Cash pick up. Is used for a recipient to pick up the money in person. This is not yet available in many locations, but for those where it's an option, the point of pick up will be listed for the sender to share with the recipient.
  • Mobile money. An instant service that sends money directly to an individual’s mobile wallet.
  • Airtime top-up. A service where you can send money to an individual’s mobile phone and increase their airtime minutes. These minutes cannot be converted to cash.

What are the pros and cons of using WorldRemit?

Pros

  • Competitive fees. The fees payable to WorldRemit can be lower than those that you will find in banks.
  • Minimum transfer. There is no minimum amount for your transfers.
  • Convenient. Being able to conduct the entire transaction online makes it easier to send money.
  • Tracking. A unique feature of WorldRemit is that they will send your recipient an SMS message when the transfer is initiated and give them the transaction number and directions on where to go to collect. You will receive a similar SMS once your beneficiary has collected the cash.

Cons

  • Low maximum transfer amount. For Australians who use a credit or debit card, only $1,000 AUD may be sent at a time. If you use POLi, an Australian online payment system, you can send up to $8,000.

      Hi Jason,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Just to confirm that finder.com.au is a third party comparison site and we don’t represent Worldremit.

      The cash-pick up location is actually not yet available in many locations in Australia. For those where it is available, the point of pick up will be listed for the sender to share with the recipient. Alternatively, you can also contact Worldremit directly on the phone number listed above to inquire.

      Cheers,
      May

      Hi Changeable,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      You’ll need to sign-up with WorldRemit before you can do money transfer. You will be prompted to choose your destination country then the type of money transfer you are making and the amount that you’ll be sending. This is an online service only, with no agencies to visit or phone transfers and the recipients can receive the cash through bank deposit, mobile money or cash pick-up. Please note that the cash pick-up option may not yet be available in some locations or countries.
      Please click this link if you want to sign-up with WorldRemit.

      Cheers,
      Jason

    I sent money and I was given a transaction number as soon as the process was done. Then they sent me email that my confirmation and transaction number will be sent to me shortly. after a while I got email that my transaction was disable but the money was taken from the card. How do I get my money back?

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for your question.

      You can certainly use an online money transfer service such as Worldremit to send money to Nepal. It might be worth considering a multi-currency account which allows you to have different currencies in one account. You can also speak to a foreign exchange expert, by filling out the form on that page.

      Hope this helps.
