Remittance Services

Sonali Bank (UK) Ltd is the major provider of remittance services to the Bangladeshi community in the UK.

Sending money back home to family and loved ones is an important service provided by Sonali Bank (UK) Limited. Remittance is affected through Electronic Transfer or Drafts. The Bangladesh Taka, UK pound Sterling and US Dollar can be remitted from the UK.

Sonali Bank Ltd Bangladesh has over a thousand branches countrywide but we can arrange for funds to be paid to beneficiaries in any part of Bangladesh through the bank of your choice.

Different ways to Remit money:-

Personal callers:

You can Remit money from any of our branches either by Debit/Credit* Card Click to find your nearest branch and details of opening times.

Once you have registered with us a Remittance Card is provided with your unique number. If you are sending a remittance to one of your previous beneficiaries there is no need to fill in further Remittance forms again.

Remittance by Telephone:

You can send your remittance by telephone using your debit or credit card*. Just call 020 7877 8200 and follow the instruction for making a remittance by telephone. If you are already registered with us you will need to have your Remitter Number handy together with details of the beneficiary to whom you want the money sent. You will be required to provide your own credit or debit card details. Once your payment has been accepted, you will be given a remittance reference number as confirmation and your remittance receipt will be posted to your home address.

You can send up to £4,000 using your debit or credit card in a day provided you have already given us the required identification.  If you have moved address and have not provided us proof of address confirmation, your remittances will be limited to £200 until the required proof of address is provided. 

All customers must register with us and provide proof of ID and proof of address before making any Remittance(s).  New Registered customers can send one off Remittance for £200 over the Telephone, for making any further Remittance(s) will require proof of income.

*A small charge applies to credit cards on the remitted amount (UK Cardholders)


ReadyCash enables the beneficiary to collect money from the cash counter of any branch of Sonali Bank Ltd in Bangladesh instantly if the branch is open or on the next working day, (Sunday to Thursday). The service is available through all of our UK Branches.

When a ReadyCash transaction is completed a SMS text is sent to both Remitter's and Beneficiary's mobile (if mobile numbers are provided) with ReadyCash Remittance information.

It is just like a normal remittance, except that the Remitter must be able to provide some information which relates to the beneficiary.

The beneficiary does not need a bank account; they will be able to draw funds from the counter if they can provide identification & the PIN number which is provided to the remitter by Sonali Bank (UK) Ltd.

An extra charge of £3.00 will be added to the normal remittance charges. The maximum remittable amount is TK200,000.00. At the time of transaction the remitter must provide the following information so that the cashier can advise the concerned branch in Bangladesh that the beneficiary will present one of the following documents:

  1. Valid Passport
  2. Valid photo card Driving Licence
  3. Photo Voter/National ID Card (which is going to be introduced in Bangladesh in near future)
  4. Certificate including photograph issued by any local Gazetted Officer/UP Chairman/Ward Commissioner of Municipal or City Corporation regarding the correctness of address
  5. Certificate signed by a bank official that includes a photograph and which declares that you hold a bank account at the bank in question

For further security to protect the beneficiary's fund we may ask the Remitter for additional information such as:

  1. Beneficiary's father's name
  2. Name of spouse of the beneficiary (if any)
  3. Occupation
  4. Present address
  5. Telephone number (if any)
  6. Relationship to the Remitter

ReadyCash is accepted only via the counter and is not available using our Telephone Remittance Service or by post.
