How to send cash online to Sri Lanka


With Sri Lanka being more than 3,000 miles from the UK, it's remarkable to think that you can make a money transfer in the UK and the recipient will be able to pick up their cash in Sri Lanka in minutes*. But that's exactly how our money in minutes* service works. That makes it perfect for those days when you really need to get cash to your family fast, but it's also great for sending regular support payments.

Whatever your reason for sending money in minutes* to Sri Lanka, the process is very simple. Simply log on or register with us to get started. Then, select cash as your delivery method and follow the instructions on screen. Pay with your bank account or bank card (Visa, MasterCard, Maestro and Visa Debit are all accepted), and you will receive a confirmation email complete with a tracking number. This tracking number (MTCN) will need to be shared with your receiver for pickup, so keep it safe.

Your receiver will be able to pick up the cash from their nearest agent location, and with more than 200 agent locations** in Sri Lanka it should be easy for them to find one nearby.
