GSMA Guidelines on International Remittances via Mobile Money

GSMA's 'Guidelines on International Remittances through Mobile Money' illustrate how the mobile money industry and its partners collaborate to ensure that international remittances conducted through mobile money are facilitated in a safe and secure manner, consistent with global standards and local monetary policy and regulations. Leading operators, remittance hubs, regulators and international experts contributed to its creation. A working group comprising leading operator groups offering mobile money services (Millicom, MTN, Vodafone and Orange) and international remittance hubs (HomeSend, MFS Africa and TransferTo) was set up by GSMA to better understand mobile money provers' best practices. Guidance from a number of regulators and international experts was also sought in the production of this document.
