What's the best way to send money to the United States?

With Revolut, of course! Revolut is supported in the United States so if your beneficiary is also a customer, transferring money from your app to theirs is absolutely free. The money will also arrive in their account instantly.

What are the fees to transfer to a bank account?

If your beneficiary isn't a Revolut customer, transferring money from your app to their bank account will incur a small fee. We charge a fixed percentage fee of 0.3%, pegged to a minimum of SGD 0.30 and a maximum of SGD 9.00. A fair usage fee will apply under certain conditions. Click here for more details.

Before you confirm the transfer, Revolut will tell you:

  • The amount your recipient gets
  • The exchange rate for this particular transaction
  • The amount exchanged in SGD
  • The fees charged
  • The total amount you pay
  • The estimated time it will take your money to reach the recipient

How long does a transfer to the United States usually take?

In most cases, transfers to the United States from Singapore will take anywhere between 1 and 3 working days to arrive.

Great! How can I send money to the United States with Revolut?

If you're already a Revolut customer, you can send money to a US bank account by adding it as a beneficiary in your Revolut app. Not a customer yet? Download the Revolut app, set up a free account, top it up via bank transfer and you're ready to start remitting money home.
