In today’s interconnected world, sending money across borders has become the norm. Nowhere are international money transfers more common than in the UAE, where expats make up the bulk of the workforce. According to the World Bank, outward remittances from the Emirates totalled nearly USD 48 billion in 2021. These remittances find their way to a variety of destinations around the world, including Kenya.

The UAE-Kenya corridor is paved with an array of money transfer options. Where once there was a one-size-fits-all means of sending money dominated by traditional banks, there’s now an exciting abundance of options spurred by technological advancements.

The rise of digital money transfers

The days of tedious paperwork and lengthy waiting times associated with international money transfers lie in the past. Traditional methods like bank transfers and money orders — often characterised by high fees, limited operating hours, and the inconvenience of physically visiting a branch — are no longer the go-to ways for Kenyans (or anyone) looking for convenience. With the rise of digital money transfer platforms, the process has been simplified and made more accessible.

Sending money to Kenya and other countries from the UAE has become a breeze, thanks to trailblazing fintech like Pyypl, who continue to make the process faster, more convenient, and more cost-effective.
