A remittance is a transfer of money by a foreign worker to his or her  home country but for many people it is simply sending amount from one  country to another.  Sending money or remitting money is nothing new, it has been a part of  human history. Several European countries, Spain, Italy and Ireland were  heavily dependent on remittances received from their emigrants during  the 19th and 20th centuries. In the case of Spain, remittances amounted to  the 21% of all of its annual income in 1946. All of those countries created  policies on remittances. However, Italy was the first country in the world  to enact a law to protect remittances in 1901 while Spain was the first  country to sign an international treaty (with Argentina in 1960) to lower  the cost of the remittances received.  Since 2000, remittances worldwide have increased sharply worldwide,  having almost tripled to $529 billion in 2012. In 2012, migrants from  India and China alone sent more than $130 billion to their home  countries. 
Philippines According to a World Bank Study, the Philippines is the second largest recipient for remittances in Asia. It was estimated in 1994 that migrants sent over USD 2.6 billion back to the Philippines through formal banking systems. With the addition of money sent through private finance companies and return migrants, the 1994 total was closer to USd 6 billion annually. Looking at current remittance flows, the total is estimated to have grown by 7.8 per cent annually to reach USD 21.3 billion in 2010. Remittances are a reliable source of revenue for the Philippines, accounting for 8.9 per cent of the country’s GDP. By Region Asia The majority of the remittances from the US have been directed to Asian countries like India (approx. 66 billion USD in 2011), China (approx. $57 billion USD), and the Philippines (approx. 23 billion USD). Most of the remittances happen by the channel of agents, like Western Union, UAE Exchange and MoneyGram. However, with the increasing relevance and reach of the  Internet, online and mobile phone money transfers from companies such as Remit2India and  Xoom.com have grown significantly. copyright © 2015 remittancesonline.com
