Expatriates in the UAE are now able to remit cash via their smartphones to the Philippines, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Kuwait.

The company has experienced a rapid spike in the number of users downloading the mobile application since March 2020.

Our strategy is to offer our remittance services to as many expatriates as possible.

"Today, we are proud to have paved the way for our customers to digitally remit cash to 11 major countries and this was no easy task. We look forward to further expanding our services to several other countries in the near future.”
