When sending money to Bahrain, keep in mind that different tax regulations may apply to sending large sums of money overseas depending on many factors including:
- how the money is going to be used
- how much you are sending
- the source of the funds
- if the money has been taxed elsewhere
For example, supporting family members by paying for living expenses is usually considered different from sending large sums of money abroad as a gift. See our Guide to Sending Money to Family Abroad for more details.
