What types of transfers can I use to send AED?
There are three different transfer types: transfers to a Revolut customer, card transfers, and bank transfers.
Note that sending money to cards is only available to selected users at the moment. Stay tuned!
Who can I send AED to?
You can send AED to a beneficiary who has a bank account from the United Arab Emirates. You can also send AED to beneficiaries outside the United Arab Emirates at a higher fee.
What information do I need about my beneficiary?
To make a transfer to any Revolut customer, you’ll need their phone number or username.
To make an international bank transfer, you’ll typically need the beneficiary’s full name, their SWIFT/BIC code, and their IBAN number. The SWIFT/BIC code should be 8 or 11 digits. The IBAN should be 23 characters, starting with AE.
To send money to a card, all you need is the card number and the cardholder’s full name.
How much can I send?
For most currencies, there are no transfer amount limits. Certain currencies might have limits set by our payments partners, which we’re unable to disclose due to compliance reasons.
If you’re making a transfer to a card, transfers to Visa cards are limited to $2,500 (or currency equivalent) per transaction while transfers to Mastercard cards are limited to $5,000 (or currency equivalent) per transaction.
Please be aware that the way we process bank transfers can change depending on the amount. This means that arrival times, intermediary fees charged by other banks and descriptions your beneficiary might see on their statement can differ. We provide more information on this when you make a transfer in the app.
How long does it usually take for the money to arrive?
AED transfers to a bank account domiciled in the United Arab Emirates typically arrive in 3 to 5 working days.
Transfers to cards typically take a few minutes but can take up to 30 minutes.
