What is the Student Expenses solution used for?
Flywire's Student Expenses Solution is for living expenses like rent, groceries, utility bills, supplies, and transportation.
What currencies can be sent/received?
We accept payments being sent from India (INR) to the United States (USD), Canada (CAD), Australia (AUD), United Kingdom (GBP) and Europe (in EUR).
Who can receive funds?
The receiver of the funds must be an Indian citizen who is a student actively studying overseas in the United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom and Europe.
Who can be a sender of the funds?
Anyone can be the sender of funds from India as long as they are (1) an Indian citizen, (2) directly related to the student, and (3) the payment is initiated from a bank account in India (denominated in INR).
This means parents, grandparents, spouses, siblings, and the student themselves are eligible to send funds.
How much can be transferred annually?
The total limit to be transferred by an individual annually is $250,000 USD. Ideally, one should take note of FX payments sent to a particular PAN number in a journal or document.
