Planning to send money home to Vietnam? You aren’t alone. There are at least 4.5 million Vietnamese-origin workers living overseas and remittances make up 6.4% of Vietnam’s GDP.

But for many find it difficult to send money home. The average cost of sending $200 from the US to Vietnam was $14.44 in 2011. These high fees, combined with a long verification process and unpredictable transfers make remittances stressful. Remitly wants to change that through simple and affordable transfers.

One of the common ways our customers send money to Vietnam is through bank deposits to a VietinBank account. It only takes a few minutes to get started, and you can track the transfer every step of the way. You can send VND or USD to your family and friends, whichever you prefer.
