How Can I Send Money to US Without Fees?
There are several ways to transfer money from UAE to the USA, including cash services that can be made over the counter at local exchange houses, online payments through apps, and international bank to bank transfers. It’s a good idea to research these options before you make a transfer, as today’s cheapest money transfer might not be the cheapest tomorrow.
You can get competitive rates through fintech apps like Wise or Skrill, if not zero fees. Wise, for instance, charges a small flat fee of 6.81 AED, along with 0.8% of the amount that’s converted for money transfer from UAE to the USA. Often some service providers will offer you zero fees on the first few transfers as a new customer. In that case, you will only pay the exchange rate margin. Look out for such offers.
