When sending money to Saudi Arabia, 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.
How to send money to Saudi Arabia at a great exchange rate
When looking at exchange rates, it’s important to know that the value of the Saudi riyal (SAR) may be affected by the value of the US dollar, as it is pegged to USD at a rate of 1 USD = 3.75 SAR. This means that, as the dollar rises or falls, so will the riyal.
