Today, we’ll focus on how to transfer money to Nepal from Australia. Traditionally, sending money to Nepal wasn’t so easy, could only be completed in person at special branches, was quite expensive, and wasn’t always safe. Fast-forward to today and the payment platform landscape has completely transformed, for the better. We’ll dive into the simple way to send money to Nepal, and also break down the importance of sending money securely.

Ensuring Your Money Is Sent Securely

In today’s digital world, the possibility of your security being compromised is real. This can make it uncomfortable for you when transferring money abroad. One of the first things you need to consider when sending money to Nepal is the method of doing so. A direct bank transfer is an idea, but isn’t always 100% secure.

Always do your research to understand what platform is facilitating your transfer, and what protection there is for you as a consumer.

City Express Money Transfer Australia uses POLi Payments to facilitate all of our transfers. This ensures a secure, and instant transfer to Nepal.

Choose the Right Exchange Rate

A currency’s exchange rate will vary depending on the supply and demand of that currency. In the context of this blog, if Nepal is doing well economically when compared to the Australian dollar and economy, the Nepalese Rupee will appreciate in value. However, if the opposite occurs, the value will depreciate. Your exchange rate will depend on this, as well as the exchange rate of the provider facilitating your transfer. Be sure to shop around to find the best Nepalese exchange rate, as this will affect the amount of money received in Nepal.
