Dont let traditional methods slow you down when sending money to Saudi Arabia
Up until relatively recently a person was very limited in the way they could get money to someone who lived in Saudi Arabia. They could send travellers cheques, but this will incur a waiting period for the post to arrive. Or they could arrange a bank to bank transfer, but this would also mean a long waiting period of around five days before the money was in their recipient's account. While these more traditional methods of currency transfer to Saudi Arabia worked they were very time consuming.
The official currency of Saudi Arabia is the Saudi Riyal and this is the only currency that is accepted in the country. While it is possible to exchange foreign currency within Saudi Arabia this can mean large fees and in some cases a poor exchange rate. By transferring money online you can benefit from checking the currency rate Saudi Arabia Riyals are being exchanged for on a daily basis.
send money to Saudi Arabia
Before you complete a money transfer to Saudi Arabia exchanging US dollars for Saudi Arabia Riyals you need to be aware that this has a fixed rate. This has been maintained since 1986 and continues to do so currently, though the exchange rate will not vary on a daily basis as it will with other foreign currencies. While the majority of foreign currencies are accepted in Saudi Arabia for exchange, the exchange of Israeli currency is banned, so do not attempt to do this.
