Banks vs. money transfer services
Banks may be useful for sending some highly-traded currencies, but you’ll find that many don’t work with an exotic currency like the somoni. This means you’ll be out of luck if you were hoping to make a money transfer through your bank.
But that doesn’t mean you don’t have options. You may be able to find money transfer companies that can send money to Tajikistan. Your exchange rate and the fees you pay will vary by provider, but in general, it will be cheaper than the rates you might have gotten from your bank.
Options for sending money to Tajikistan from Hong Kong
- Bank transfers. You may be able to find a bank that can send money to a Tajikistani account, but it will be difficult and likely cost you extra in fees.
- Online money transfer providers. Often cheaper than banks, money transfer providers still may not be the best choice if your recipient lacks a bank account.
- Money transfer companies with cash pickup options. Western Union and MoneyGram both have agent locations in Tajikistan, which means your recipient will be able to pick up their money in cash.
