How to send money abroad to your family without going to a money exchange house or remittance center? All you need is a device and internet connection! We listed down some of the ways you can easily remit money with or without a debit/credit card!

Note from the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs

Due to recent decisions related to the closure of money exchange offices operating in the country, the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs urges company owners and businesses to inform workers, assist and educate them about alternative online services available via the Internet, smartphone applications, or Ooredoo financial services. Many of these electronic services are available in several languages.

1. Internet and Mobile Banking

If you have a debit card and credit card, you can either download your bank’s mobile application or use Online Banking through your bank’s website. Your bank's mobile application is available for both iPhone and Android devices.

Here is the list of the major banks in Qatar:
