  • Residents of Canada and other countries:
While your local bank branch might be the most obvious option for                      sending money across borders, you can save on fees and take                            advantage of more competitive exchange rates with an online money                  transfer company. To transfer money to the U.S., you will need to:
    • Compare some services that can send your money in USD.

Check for further details regarding other currencies and current exchange rates.
