Ooredoo has highlighted the features of its Ooredoo Money service as demand for remotely accessible remittances increases due to the temporary closure of money exchanges in line with current guidelines relating to the ongoing global novel coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.
Qatar’s leading telecommunications operator has seen a rise in the use of its Ooredoo Money service since the temporary closure of exchange houses, and a rise in the number of remittances being sent, according to a statement on Tuesday.
Customers can send remittances via one of Ooredoo Money’s trusted partners – MoneyGram, Al Dar Exchange, Al Zaman Exchange and Gulf Exchange – to hundreds of banks and accounts around the world, for free until April 15. Some transfers are instant, with others taking 72 hours depending on the country and the bank.
In keeping with the Stay Home with Ooredoo campaign and Qatar’s ongoing efforts to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus, customers can carry out the entire transaction with their Ooredoo Money app, enabling them to send their remittances from home quickly, easily and efficiently.
Sabah Rabia al-Kuwari, director, public relations at Ooredoo, said of the offer extension: “These are challenging times, with many of us worried about family members back home, and we know our customers need to be reassured they can still carry out essential transactions even while we all stay home for our own safety and for that of our community. Demand for international remittances is always high, as customers send money to their families, and we’re pleased to be able to help in any way we can.”
To send remittances via Ooredoo Money, customers need simply download the Ooredoo Money app from either the App Store or Google Play and then register for the service.
