Get a better deal for foreign transfers to Qatar

When sending money to Qatar 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 4 simple steps :

  1. Open an account with a BER reviewed FX provider (id docs may be required)
  2. You specify the local or Qatari rial 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 QAR amount will be transfered to the recipient account you specify in Qatar.

Use the above Send to Qatari rial calculator to compare the exchange rates of FX specialist providers rates versus your bank's standard rates you can hopefully save around 5% and maybe more - end result is more Qatari rial deposited into the recipient bank account and less margins and fees kept by the banks!
