Want to save money when you send dirham? There’s a smarter, cheaper way to send money internationally.

When you convert currencies with traditional providers, such as a bank, a broker or PayPal, you typically pay a lot more than you expect. On top of fees they charge, they use an exchange rate with a mark-up, which often ends up costing you more than what you thought you’d pay.

Wise is different. We’re on a mission to build faster, cheaper and fairer international payments. Our fees are completely transparent and they’re a fraction of what banks or brokers usually charge. We use the real exchange rate with no mark-up, so you know exactly how much you’re paying every time. It's international banking built the right way.

How Wise works:

  • Our transfers are fast, fair and low cost – the fee is typically below 1% of the total amount you're sending plus a small fixed fee.
  • You always get the real exchange rate for your dirham - with no costly mark-up.
  • You can make AED transfers straight from wise.com, or from our iOS and Android apps.
  • You can send money with Wise directly to other bank accounts or to the Wise borderless account, which lets you spend, send and receive money in multiple currencies.

All your international banking needs in one account. Your Wise account also lets you:

  • Hold over 50 currencies in your account, and convert between them instantly.
  • Get paid from abroad for free with local bank details for 6 major currencies.

8 million people already save using Wise - and they're all pretty cool.

Meet Sophie, who moved from London to Dubai with her partner in the middle of the pandemic, both in pursuit of work opportunities, to experience a new part of the world, and for travel adventures.

“We had never visited Dubai before so I had no expectations whatsoever. There was, and is, a lot of uncertainty about the medium to long term. But I feel we’re in a safe place. Having Wise whenever we need to send money back home made everything so much easier.”
