Sending money to Pakistan is simple. You just need to compare exchanges rates and transfer costs from as many transfer companies as possible to find the cheapest deal.

Most do not advertise their exchange rates online, so you need to complete their online form to get a personalised quote by email. Your quote will include:

  • The amount you want to transfer

  • The exchange rate offered

  • Any charges for sending your money to Pakistan

Most companies give you a better exchange rate if you transfer a large amount of money, such as 5,000 or more.

Check the timescales with your transfer company before you send your money.

Why use this type of transfer?

Using an international money transfer service is usually cheaper than sending money through your bank. You can use this type of transfer for things like:

Transfer companies can also offer more services, such as a regular payment facility which lets you set up multiple transfers over a set period of time.
