Using GCash Abroad: Easier and Secure Thru Official Remittance Partners

International remittances services like Western Union, Ria, Remitly, and MoneyGram enable Filipinos overseas to securely send money straight to the GCash accounts of their family and loved ones. Additionally, GCash now allows more Filipinos abroad to use the app wherever they are with their international or non-Philippine mobile numbers.

With the expansion of GCash overseas, both migrants and Filipinos abroad have better control over their finances. While the free real-time money transfers gives recipients in the Philippines convenient and hassle-free access to funds, GCash also allows app users overseas to pay bills—such as utilities, taxes, and tuition— directly on the app. Filipinos abroad can also buy load for people back home, so families can stay connected with ease through messages and international calls, even from afar.

“By making GCash accessible to more Filipinos abroad, managing finances is now easier from afar. This helps push our vision of financial inclusion for all Filipinos, wherever they may be in the world,” says Ren-Ren Reyes, president and CEO of GCash mobile wallet operator G-Xchange, Inc.

GCash, as the Philippines’ top finance app, has fully expanded its international reach and fully launched its global push following the approval from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas. Filipinos in 16 countries—the US, Canada, Italy, the UK, Australia, Japan, the United Arab Emirates, the Kingdom of Qatar, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Spain, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Singapore—can now use international mobile numbers to sign up and use the GCash app.

To access GCash outside the Philippines, follow these steps:

  1. Download the App: Get the GCash app from Google Play, the App Store, or Huawei AppGallery using an active international SIM card.
  2. Register: Open the app, select your country, enter your mobile number, and fill in your personal information.
  3. Set Your MPIN: Create your MPIN and log in.
  4. Verify Your Identity: Have a valid ID, such as your Philippine passport, ready for scanning to verify your account.
  5. Facial Verification: Complete the facial verification by taking a selfie and providing additional required information.
  6. Wait for Confirmation: Wait for the SMS confirmation.
  7. Start Using GCash: Once you receive the confirmation, enter your MPIN and start using the app.
