Portugal is one of the EU countries that receives the most in remittances each year, receiving the most by far in Western Europe.
In 2020, Portugal was one of Xe’s top 5 most popular money transfer destinations.
The euro is the second-most traded currency in the markets, just after the US dollar.
On January 1, 1999, Portugal was one of the first countries to adopt the euro.
The euro is the official currency of 19 EU member states (out of 27).
Our exchange rates are bank-beating and we don't charge any additional fees to use our service. Our rates are linked to the live foreign exchange markets and will update right up until you confirm the transfer, so you can secure a rate you are comfortable with.
The majority of our money transfers are completed on the same day. Occasionally certain factors can affect the transfer completion date. We'll keep you updated by email throughout the process.
You can make wire payments to or from Portugal on our website or mobile app. Once you've booked your transfer, you can make payment to us by bank transfer or debit/credit card.
The amount you can transfer with XE is unlimited. You can transfer up to $500,000 USD online (or currency equivalent). For larger amounts, you can contact our currency experts and they can guide you through the transfer process over the phone.
