(PRWEB UK) 23 August 2016
WorldRemit, one of the fastest-growing global remittances services, today announces its launch in Virginia. WorldRemit provides a secure way for Virginia residents to send money to their loved ones around the world.
Most migrants still visit money transfer agent locations when sending money overseas. With the WorldRemit app, Virginians can now send instant money transfers to people in more than 125 countries, directly from their phones.
“Residents of Virginia now have the power to share money with friends and relatives abroad, 24/7,” comments Brion Nazzaro, Director at WorldRemit Corp. “Over a million Virginians were born overseas. Until now, they have had to endure waiting in line at expensive money transfer agents when sending money home. Now they can make secure money transfers with just a few taps of the WorldRemit app.”
Virginians can send money to be received in four convenient ways:
- Instant bank transfer
- Mobile Money transfer
- Cash pick-up
- Mobile airtime top-up
WorldRemit customers already send more than 450,000 transfers around the world every month. The service is available in 50+ countries and 45 states in the U.S.
The United States is the world’s biggest sender of remittances with more than $56bn sent overseas each year, according to the World Bank.
