It is likely that the Hong Kong office will be closed on Friday 21st October due to a typhoon. You will be able to trade online as usual. Please contact us by email with any queries and we will respond once the office reopens.

How does it work?

Once you've signed up you can book a rate by phone or online 24/7.
All you need to do is...

Book your rate

Once your account is set up all you need to do is tell us how much you want to send, who you want to pay and which currency you want to pay in. Then we'll quote you a rate. Simple!

Send your money

Once you've booked your rate you'll receive an email confirming your trade details. It'll have the payment information so you can send your money to us by bank transfer.

We send it out

Put your feet up. Grab a cuppa.
We'll do the rest - convert your funds and send the money to the account you requested. Done and dusted.

What we offer

Spot contracts

So called because they’re done ‘on the spot’, this allows you to secure a rate and make your payments straight away. This is the ideal option if you’re a busy person and just need to get things moving as soon as possible!

Forward contracts

Like to plan ahead? Then forward contracts are for you. They allow you to lock in an exchange rate now and make your payment later. In fact, you can secure a rate up to six months in advance!

Regular payments

You can set up a plan with us so that when we receive your money, we'll convert it quickly, reliably and securely. And you can choose if you want it converted at the rate on the day, or you can lock in a rate making budgeting a whole lot easier.

Send money to the USA

The US is seen as the land of hopes and dreams. If you’ve been dreaming of great exchange rates and the highest levels of customer service when you transfer money to the USA, it’s just as well you found us.

Whatever your reason for sending money to or from the USA - whether it’s a new home and a new start, perhaps your children are leaving the nest for an American college or maybe you’re heading there for an exciting new job opportunity (congrats, by the way!) and you need to transfer money home – World First is here to make your currency transfer to the USA fast, cheap and easy.

We save you money because we take a smaller margin than the banks, and that means your money goes further. In fact, when you find out how much money you could save when you send money to the USA with World First, we think you’ll have a nice day, as Americans say.

Our cracking customer service is first class - we’ve got the awards to prove it – and our simple online platform means it’s easier than ever to make a transfer at any time of day.

We’ve got a wide variety of products, from the very simple to the slightly more complex, but your dedicated contact is on hand to talk you through your options, and make sure you choose the right one for you. You can deal straightaway at the best exchange rate on the day, or fix a rate for a transfer in the future, which makes it really easy to budget effectively. Plus, we offer hedging options that allow you to fix a rate for a date in the future, but still let you benefit if the rates move in your favour.

We would love for you to join us. The sooner you sign up, the sooner we can start saving you time and money when you send money to the USA!
