Money Transfers to Ukraine with Meest Canada: A Step-by-Step Guide

We are lucky to live in a time where sending money from Canada to Ukraine quickly and securely is easy. No matter the distance, whether from Toronto, Hamilton, Ottawa, Calgary, Vancouver, or Montreal, you can send money and have it received in Ukraine by the next business day. Let's look at how to send money to Ukraine with Meest.

How to Send Money from Canada to Ukraine

Meest Canada makes life easier for its customers by constantly adding more convenient ways to handle money transfers. If you’re looking to help friends or family in Ukraine, here’s how you can do it:

  1. Aval and PrivatBank are already on board with Meest for money transfers. Just swing by your bank the next day to pick up your cash. 
  2. If you don’t like dealing with banks, you can have the money delivered right to your recipient's door. Choose the currency beforehand — Ukrainian Hryvnyas, US, or Canadian Dollars — and get it delivered in cash without worrying about exchange rate losses. This method usually takes a bit more time.
  3. Both options allow selecting the type of currency the recipient will receive. Thus, you can avoid losses on currency exchange rates — for example, if you send Canadian dollars from Canada and the recipient in Ukraine gets cash in Canadian dollars, too.

Sending support to Ukraine has never been easier or more flexible.

Need-to-Know for Sending Money to Ukraine

How can I send money to Ukraine? Start by popping into your nearest Meest Canada office. You'll fill out a simple form with your address and phone number.

Essentials for Receiving Money in Ukraine

Getting your hands on money in Ukraine is straightforward. Go to a bank or wait for a courier with cash, and have these ready:

  • Your valid passport.
  • The Meest transfer code.
  • Information about the sender and the exact amount sent.

Remember, if you don't already have an account with the bank, there's no need to open one just to receive the money.

With all the information at hand, all that's left is to choose how to send money to Ukraine in a way that's convenient for you and the recipient. Meest Canada has made sure the money transfer process is speedy and beneficial!
