Another popular option is to use a Pre-paid Travel Card. Your Debit/Credit Card provider will charge you 2% from market mid-rate, but your bank may also charge an extra 3% as an “Overseas Transaction Charge” plus “Overseas ATM” fees for withdrawing cash.

Sending Money to Bhutan

When sending money to Bhutan it’s important to compare your bank’s rates & fees with those we have negotiated with our partner money transfer providers. To get a better deal you should follow these 3 simple steps :

  1. Open an account with a provider (id docs may be required)
  2. You specify the local or Bhutanese Ngultrum amount you want to transfer
  3. Make a local currency domestic transfer for the requested amount to the provider's bank account in your country
  4. Once your funds are received by the provider the converted BTN amount will be transfered to the recipient account you specify in Bhutan.

You can save around 5% and maybe more - end result is more Bhutanese Ngultrum deposited into the recipient bank account in Bhutan and less margins and fees kept by the banks!
