Since the Coronavirus outbreak, WorldFirst has closely monitored the global situation. Our priority is to ensure continuity of service for our customers while taking appropriate measures to protect our employees.

Given the increase in UK cases, we have now encouraged employees to work remotely. They are able to operate normally using well-tested systems, and our teams are committed to ensure customer service is not impacted, but if there’s any delay in your calls or emails being answered please bear with us.


Are you ready to transfer money to New Zealand?

We’re WorldFirst and we can make it easier, cheaper and faster to send money to New Zealand.

We take a smaller margin than the banks which means you’ll get more New Zealand dollars for your buck. It’s as simple as that.

Whether you’re buying a property in New Zealand or working there and sending money home, simply put, we’ll make the whole process better.

You can register quickly too, so our award-winning customer service team can have your kiwi dollars on their way in no time at all.


Cheaper international money transfer on New Zealand dollars

How are we able to offer a cheaper service than the banks? Simple; we typically make less profit on every transfer.

And because we’ve transferred more than £50bn for tens of thousands of clients since 2004, you know you’re in safe-hands too when sending money to New Zealand.

How it works


Secure a rate on NZD

Once your account is setup and you’ve given us the details of the account you’d like us to pay, we’ll quote you a rate. You can access rates either online or by phone.


Send us your money

When you’ve agreed a rate for NZD, we’ll ask you to send us the money by bank transfer before we make your transfer. The minimum we can transfer is £1,000 or equivalent.


Make your payment

Once we’ve received your funds we’ll send your onward payment in New Zealand dollars.

What we offer

Spot contracts

So called because they're done 'on the spot', allowing you to secure an exchange rate and make your payments straight away. A spot 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 could be for you. They allow you to lock in exchange rates now and make your international payments later. In fact, you can secure a rate up to three years in advance.

Regular international payments

If you're sending money abroad on a regular basis, you'll want to set up automated payments. You can arrange this quickly and easily with us over the phone or online.
