We’re super excited to announce that you can now send money from AED to 70+ countries!
🎉 This makes Wise the first fully online money transfer service in the UAE. 🎉
With the UAE being 1 of the top 5 countries worldwide for sending money overseas, we’re moving closer towards our mission of making sending money around the world cheaper, fairer and more convenient.
- Available to consumer users only
- Top target currencies on Wise so far have been GBP, EUR, AUD, BRL
- Expected core currencies in the future GBP, EUR, USD, INR, PKR, PHP, THB
On average we’re 2x cheaper than banks and exchange houses
We’re particularly competitive for sending between 1000 - 50K AED
Send money from AED to 70+ countries with ability to send to bank accounts or mobile wallets in the Philippines
Convenient - can track status of transfer via desktop or mobile app, fully online service so no need to visit exchange houses in person, sending via bank transfer rather than SWIFT transfer so beneficiary avoids fees
Need to include the following information about Wise when mentioning the ability to send money from AED:
Full version (Recommended): Wise Nuqud Ltd is regulated by the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA). Its parent company, TransferWise Ltd, is an authorised Electronic Money Institution regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK.
Shortened version: Regulated by ADGM's Financial Services Regulatory Authority
Shortest version: Regulated by the FRSA
Trust will be particularly important factor in the current climate so pushing the regulatory messaging above will help with this
