Can you send money to Syria from the US? Here’s the information you need.
Unfortunately, you can’t send money to Syria. Even if you have a loved one in Syria who needs money desperately, an international money transfer to a sanctioned country is illegal in the US.
Why can't I send money to Syria?
Due to Syria’s participation in terrorist activities and the ongoing civil war, the US government has placed sanctions on the country. This means you can’t send money or goods to anyone living there. Attempting to get around these sanctions is illegal. If you send money to another country without sanctions against Syria and then pass those funds onto a recipient in Syria, you may face tough legal and financial consequences.
