For Filipinos in the U.S., remittance or money transfer to the Philippines is not a problem, as many Philippine banks in the US have remittance partners across the U.S., in addition to Filipino-owned or Filipino-American-owned remittance service providers, international money transfer operators such as MoneyGram, Western Union, and Xoom, and U.S. banks' funds transfer operations.
