How to Safely Send Money to Vietcombank in Vietnam in 5 Easy Steps

Need to send money home to Vietnam? You are similar to millions of Vietnamese citizens living abroad looking to send remittances home. In 2019 alone, Vietnamese workers abroad sent 16.7 billion U.S. dollars to their friends and families. Remittances are so significant, that they take up 6.4% of Vietnam’s GDP. 

But as you probably already know, it’s not easy to send money home. High fees and unfavorable exchange rates mean that sending money is often expensive. In fact, the average cost of transferring $200 to Vietnam from the US was over $14 in 2011. And not much has changed since. 

Remitly is changing that.

There are many ways you can send money to Vietnam, but many of our customers use Vietcombank. You can send money as a bank deposit or as a cash pickup in USD or VND. And you can track it every step of the way on Remitly’s app.
