FAQ’s – Home Remittance

Home remittance is the transfer of money by a migrant worker to his/her family/loved ones back in Pakistan, through legal banking channels.

Anyone who is a legal resident of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and holds a valid government issued photo ID may receive home remittance payments from abroad.

Bank Alfalah home remittance beneficiaries can receive payments sent by our dedicated partners via the following payment modes:
– Cash-over-Counter payments for walk-in customers at Bank Alfalah branches
– Instant Account Credit to Bank Alfalah account holders
– Instant Account Credit to 1Link member bank account holders
– Same Day Account Credit to other bank account holders via RTGS

For Cash-over-Counter, you can visit any one of Bank Alfalah branches and present the unique reference number (given to you by the remitter) and a valid government issued photo ID to collect your payment. Bank account transfers are directly credited to your bank account so please ensure to provide your complete and correct account number, preferably IBAN, to your remitter.
