Since WUMT is now (since March 2019) no longer operating from post offices or Danamon banks, someone told me "RIA" is a similar thing that someone can send cash and it can be collected through "RIA" in BRI bank

Anyone got any experience of this, does it still operate here or also closed

BTW nowadays you can send money from a WUMT and still receive it directly in your account in Jakarta same day

I have done this a few times now from Malaysia, given them RM in KLCC and it's been in my BCA by the time I got to the airport

quite useful if you dont want to carry large amounts through customs and also have the hassle of changing it into IDR and depositing cash at atm or branch etc

It seems RIA has much better rates than WU?

I used TransferWise before but was not really impressed. I still get the best results by changing cash after transferring to a € account. And 3-5 working days is acceptable.

WU no longer here for cash collection

rate is ok considering the speed, everyone has to make their little bit, thats the cost of speed
