For most of the expats, living anywhere around the globe, savings is the only goal keeping them in foreign land, away from the comfort of their home country. At the start of month, getting the hard earned money, first thing most expats do is to transfer funds to their loved ones back home. Funds are transferred via different channels such as banking channel, money transfer services like western union, money gram and online money transfer services like Skrill and Paypal.

In KSA, expats use 2 most popular ways to send money back home, i.e. Banks and money transfer services.

  • Online banking system is very easy and secured method to transfer funds from KSA to our home country. Depending on the source bank in KSA and destination bank in your country, the funds can take from minimum 1 to several days depending on different reasons. Through online banking system one can send money in just couple of minutes. The only drawback of using the banking system is that it takes days to transfer funds from KSA to home country.

  • Expats living in KSA that do not have bank accounts, need to rely on different money transfer services to send money back home. Normally these services take only a few hours to transfer the funds to home country, where your loved ones can get cash from counter.
