I have been doing the remittance business in Nepal for the last 15 years. There were only a few international companies that could send money. As I recall 15 years ago, it took at least two days, and sometimes even a week, to pay money to the beneficiary. Now, those days have over, the rapid development of the technology and remittance business now the money can deliver within a minute. Today, in this post, I would like to tell you how the Remitly Nepal pays the money even if it doesn’t have an office in this country.

Is the Remitly Nepal registered company in Nepal?

No, it is an international cross-border money transfer company that is not registered with the Central Bank of Nepal. There are no international money transfer companies that have been authorized to do independent business here in Nepal unless they have partnered with the local company. It is the policy of the Nepalese government.

It is common in remittance business in Nepal, not all local remittance companies that can set up an office abroad where NRNs work and stay. Similarly not all the foreign remit companies can establish offices in Nepal, because, it could be a high cost for them. To reduce their operating costs, most of the companies they work as partners, including Remitly Inc.

Remitly inc is the partner with Nepal remit, which is registered as a remittance company with the central bank of Nepal. Although Nepal remit is a new company it has 2831 payout locations including agents across the country.
