Through Mastercard Cross-Border Services, Boubyan Bank customers will have greater choice and flexibility when sending money to destinations around the world.

Mastercard Cross-Border Services is now available on Boubyan Bank’s mobile application, allowing users to seamlessly transfer money. Through a single connection, users can send money in a swift and secure manner to beneficiary bank accounts, mobile wallets, or cash-out points globally.

J.K. Khalil, Cluster General Manager, MENA East, Mastercard, said, “Remittances play an integral part in the global economic recovery and are a vital service for those in this region and their beneficiaries around the world. Boubyan Bank joins a growing list of global partners working with Mastercard to offer people and businesses a more certain and secure way to pay and get paid across borders. This partnership further expands our multi-rail proposition through the Mastercard payments matrix as we enable money to be sent how, where, and when people choose.”
