The United Kingdom has entered a new, monthlong lockdown period. As offices and shops close down, you might be wondering if Xe will be the same. 

We want to reassure you that we’re still here to help with any international money transfers that you need to make, whether you’re sending money to support loved ones overseas or making regular international bill payments.

Has anything about sending money with Xe changed?

Not at all! You can still initiate a money transfer with Xe any time of day, and send money to over 130 countries around the world. Our customer support teams are working remotely and will still be available to help you if you have any problems with your transfer.

You can initiate an Xe transfer through any of the following methods:

  • Online

  • In our money transfer app

  • Over the phone

None of these methods will be impacted by lockdowns. Additionally, because your money transfer will be deposited directly into your recipient’s bank account, you can be sure that they’ll still receive their money transfer quickly and easily.
