Why can't I send money to Iran?

Because of sanctions in place, no bank or money transfer company can send money from Singapore to Iran. This is because Singapore is an active member of the United Nations (UN), which has sanctions that don’t allow any kind of financial transactions between Singapore and Iran.

If you send money to another country without sanctions against Iran and then pass those funds onto a recipient in Iran, you may face tough legal and financial consequences.
