We understand that sometimes you may need to send a large amount of funds to the Philippines. Here is what you need to know before you proceed.
There are some limits when sending larger amounts to the Philippines. You can pay using your Debit Card for single transactions up to £992 in the UK and Gibraltar, and up to €3,000 in Germany, Ireland and the Netherlands.

We may request additional documents for remittances accumulating over 5,000 (local currency) within 31 days. Please note that the total amount you can send within 31 days is 10,000 (local currency).
For further advice on what documents to prepare and to avoid possible delays when sending a large amount, our 24/7 customer support team will be happy to assist you.
When sending large amounts every peso received on the other side counts. If your transfer is urgent, you can check our live rates in the calculator tool to send now. Or you can choose to monitor the exchange rate over a course of a few days and make your transfer when it’s right for you.
We follow a sophisticated Know Your Customer check and compliance guidelines in line with FCA and HMRC rules. You must not use Kabayan Remit to process a transfer that may be illegal. We have the right to modify or suspend your use of our service immediately if unlawful use is identified.
There are different online scams nowadays. Scammers are professional, compelling, and can be very convincing. To avoid being scammed, send money only to your family and friends you know personally. Additionally, please be advised that with Kabayan Remit, you can only send money for yourself. You cannot process a transfer on behalf of others.
