This article is for: Tide members using our international currency feature. (This feature is not available to all Tide members.)

Security is our top priority so we know you’ll understand that, after a review, we’ve decided not to transact with higher-risk countries.

If you have international payments enabled for your Tide account, you can continue making transfers to these countries:

Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden

And you can receive transfers from these countries:

Antarctica, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Chile, Czech Republic, Denmark, Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Germany, Greenland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Svalbard and Jan Mayen, Sweden, Åland Islands

Sometimes when you receive a transfer from another country, we’ll ask you for more details about the transaction.

Need to transact with a country not on these lists?

This isn’t possible with your Tide account at the moment so you’ll need to make alternative arrangements. We’re sorry if this is inconvenient.

We’re developing our systems to process more international payments

We know sending and receiving international payments is important to many small businesses so we’re working on this as we develop our systems.

We hope to expand the range of countries we can support and when we’re ready to do this, we’ll post about it here on the Tide blog.

Any questions?

Take a look at our FAQs about international transfers. For anything else, send us a message in the Tide app and we’ll be happy to help. 🙂
