Celebrations in Bangladesh for Eid ul-Adha — the second Islamic holiday of the year – are likely to be a little different this year.
The lasting impacts of COVID-19, such as social distancing and limited travel, remain in place. However, this is still an important time to send money home and it’s a great way to show loved ones that you care.
To help the celebrations, our Muslim customers who plan to send money to Bangladesh for Eid ul-Adha have two opportunities to access a free transfer.
Want to take advantage of Small World’s Eid ul-Adha offer? Here’s how.
Small World’s offer for Eid ul-Adha
To celebrate Eid ul-Adha, Small World is offering one free money transfer to Bangladesh (and other Muslim countries) between 15 July and 31 July. To take advantage of a fee-free transfer, just use the promo code “ADHA” when using our services to send money home.
Additionally, between 27 July and 31 July a second free transfer can be made using the code “ADHA20”.
How to send money to Bangladesh
There are a number of easy ways to send money to friends and relatives in Bangladesh, any time. The easiest way to set up a Small World account is online, by registering via the Small World website and:
- Choosing Bangladesh as the country you want to send to
- Entering the amount
- Entering the beneficiary’s details
- Choosing your payment method (card or transfer)
- Confirming and paying
Alternatively, the Small World app is available from the Apple Store and on Google Play. Once the app has been downloaded and your account is set up, you will be able to:
Transfer money in 3 simple steps See the status of your transfers Access all the latest promotions Customer support in your local language Repeat a transfer that you’ve made previously using the One Swipe Send function Once your account is set up, you can choose from the following secure options, depending on which is most efficient for your recipient in Bangladesh.
There are almost 9,000 cash pick-up locations across Bangladesh, making is easy for your loved ones to find an agent nearby. Your recipient will receive a unique PIN to allow them access to their money, which they will be able to withdraw in cash from a Small World agent.
Alternatively, if your recipient has a bank account you can transfer money directly to them in an instant.
Another popular option is to top up your beneficiary’s mobile phone. You can send money in the form of credit to a pre-paid mobile phone. During a celebration like Eid ul-Adha, extra airtime to keep in touch with loves ones is always a great option.
If your recipient has a Smart Phone and access to a money wallet such as the one provided by bKash, this can be a quick and secure option for both of you.

Anywhere pick-up is a secure, inexpensive and fast way to send money. It allows the person receiving your money to access it close to their home, or as they move through the country.
