MoneyGram is a two-way street. Receiving an international transfer from friends or family via MoneyGram is just as easy and convenient as sending one to them.
Once your friend or family member has completed the transaction at their nearest MoneyGram location, all they need to do is send you the reference number so you can pick up the money on your end.
When you go to pick up your money, be sure to bring along your passport, driver’s licence or national identification card with you. By providing your reference number and ID, you can complete the “receive” form in store and access your money in a matter of minutes.
Once everything has been verified, you’ll receive your money in New Zealand dollars.
Can I send money to a bank account?
If you’re sending money to India, China, Sri Lanka or the Philippines from New Zealand, yes you can!
Visit your nearest Travel Money NZ store, bringing your money and ID with you, and fill in the send form, selecting "Account Deposit" as the receive option.
Also make sure you bring the bank name, the name on the account, the account number and a mobile number for the recipient.
Once your transaction has been processed by our consultant, you’ll receive a receipt and reference number. The recipient will be able to check their bank account to ensure they’ve received the money.
How long does it take to transfer money?
This will depend on a range of factors, including the recipient’s banking institution and the destination country. Some cash transfers can be received in under an hour, whereas others may not appear until the following day.
If you need to send or receive money urgently, your local Travel Money NZ store will be able to give you an estimate for how long your transfer will take. We know time is of the essence when it comes to international transfers, and we’ll do everything we can to get your money to its destination as quickly as possible.
