Make money transfers to India from around the world

WorldRemit makes it easy to perform fast money transfers to India from more than 145 countries around the world. Transfers can be made using any device, meaning you can support family and friends living, working or travelling in India.

Some of the most popular transfer routes include UK to India, US to India, as well as from Australia and Canada.

Indian rupee exchange rate

We offer bank-beating exchange rates on the dollars, sterling and other currencies you send to India so friends and family receive more rupees. We also show you the fees and exchange rate you’ll receive upfront so you can check WorldRemit is the cheapest way to send money to India before making the transfer.

How much Indian currency can you send?

The amount you can transfer to India depends on the country you send the money from and the particular service you choose. Every country has its own rules relating to money transfers. For example, if you want to make a money transfer to India from the UK then the limit may not be the same as a US to India airtime top-up. 

You can check how much you can send to India by selecting the transfer service you want to use in the blue ‘Send to’ calculator at the top of this page. If the sum you enter exceeds the limit then a pop up will tell you the maximum amount for that service.

We send money to India thousands of times every week and use state-of-the-art technology to make sure your transactions are sent safely. Every transfer is fast, low cost and safe, and we'll send you and your recipient an SMS notification as soon as the transfer is made.

I recently linked up with WorldRemit and I am truly happy with the services I get from them. For over 20 years I sent money to my friends and relatives in Nigeria and many times, it was like they were doing me a favor. I am glad I found this site, and I am here to stay. Thanks so much WorldRemit!
