Xoom is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help with the time difference between the United States and Vietnam. During banking hours in Vietnam, customers can receive their funds at a Sacombank location instantly.

Pia Guter, an immigrant from the Philippines, is the marketing director in charge of Vietnam. “Xoom is the easiest way to send money to Vietnam. Customers can send money in seconds with Xoom’s app,” says Guter. “Sacombank is a great partner that offers our customers plenty of choice for sending money. Whether you want delivery or pickup, dong or dollar — Xoom offers it,” adds Guter.

Recipients don’t need to have a Sacombank account to receive a money transfer from Xoom. In addition, door-to-door delivery is available to most cities and provinces. Same-day delivery is available for most major cities and is one to two days for provincial areas.
