About this Site

This site aims to provide you with everything you need to know to send money to the Philippines. With about 10 million Pinoys living overseas, mostly to work, remittances to the Philippines remain to be the economy's main source of foreign fund. The World Bank estimated 17B USD in remittances by end of 2009, next only to India and China as the world's top recipient countries of remittances. I hope this site can provide a comprehensive guide and all the possible options for Filipinos living abroad and Foreigners living in the Philippines to provide for their families and loved ones in the most economical and convenient way.
