Send money overseas at rates worth celebrating this Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year is nearly here, meaning much of Asia will shut down in celebration of the year of the pig.

In 2019, Chinese New Year falls on 5th February – but much of mainland China will be closed for up to two weeks for festivities. If you have upcoming transfers to make, now’s the time to act. Whether you're reconnecting with friends and family overseas, or just making sure business runs as smoothly as usual, remember to lock in your transfers soon.

We know how important money transfers are to our customers. It’s not just about making payments: money transfers help connect friends and family, and help businesses prosper. That’s why we work hard to ensure transferring money with us is swift, simple and secure all year round.

If you’re new to OFX, you can register in moments; if you’re already a customer simply, log in to make a transfer. And to everyone, from all of us at OFX, we hope you enjoy the celebrations and have a happy, healthy, prosperous year of the pig.
