We’re inspired by the sacrifice and courage of our customers.
Our mission is simple: to tirelessly deliver on our promises to help immigrants save, spend, and send money across the world. For so many, the process of opening a bank account is often difficult. Between high fees, restrictive documentation requirements and an array of hidden costs, immigrants have long been disadvantaged by traditional financial services. At Remitly, we’re constantly exploring how to make financial services more relevant and accessible for immigrants while addressing the distinct challenges they face. We believe the work we’ve done with our banking app, Passbook, is important progress toward opening the doors of financial inclusion for everyone, regardless of immigration status.
With over 2.6 million active customers, Remitly is a leading digital financial services provider for immigrants and their families in over 135 countries around the world. Our vision is to transform the lives of immigrants and families by providing the most trusted financial services on the planet. Through our cross-border remittance services, we help immigrants send money home in a safe, reliable, and transparent manner via its digitally-native app, which eliminates the long wait times, complexities and fees typical of traditional remittance processes. Remitly is headquartered in Seattle and has offices around the world, including London, Kraków, Manila, and Managua.
We took what we learned from building the world’s largest independent remittance company, Remitly, and added the voices of hundreds of our customers. The result: a new kind of banking app, designed specifically for immigrants. With Passbook, we aim to eliminate the barriers and complexity that immigrants face when trying to open a bank account in the U.S. We make this possible by accepting alternative forms of identification, removing banking fees, enabling easy international Visa card use, offering unique international money transfer benefits and providing the best in class customer service experience.
