Sending money to Tunisia is a priority for many people living and working across the globe. A glance at research conducted by the World Bank shows the scale of the remittances: in 2019 alone, the equivalent of more than $2 billion was sent back to the country. Tunisians who make international money transfers don’t just make a difference to the lives of their loved ones – their TND remittances also help spur Tunisia’s economic growth.

At Remitly, we believe that sending dinars to the most important people in your life should be easy. That’s why we provide a simple-to-use app, along with a clear fee structure and cost-effective exchange rates. Remitly transfers also mean that you can send directly to your recipient’s Banque de l’Habitat account, or arrange for them to collect their money at numerous pickup locations in Tunisia. Either way, here’s our quick guide to making it happen.
