remit money to Indon
Hi, just hired a helper for the first time and she has asked me to remit money to Indonesia on her behalf.
Where's the best place to do it?

Western Union in Melbourne plaza (Central) may be a good place to look at transfering money. The person at the receiving end may need two forms of ID if I recall.

You can use the indonesian bank BNI in causewaybay. I did once, and from i can remember it did not cost much. And it is a safe choice since this bank is one of indonesian goverment bank. The detail is as below:
Address : Flat/RM5 on G/F, Nos 1-7 Keswick Street, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong,

You can send money through Western Union but they have a service charge.
You'll need her ID (or yours if your doing it on her behalf) and the person who is collecting it's ID.
You can give them a ring before you go and ask what you will need exactly, how much the service charge is etc.
Western Union - 2117 9088

Forgot about BNI - that is a good way to remit too. Did not recommend them in my earlier post as I was not sure if the person on the receiving end needs to have a bank account with them.

Also forgot about Hong Kong Post's remittance service.
Worth checking with them.
Hongkong Post is pleased to introduce the Postal Remittance Service to cater for both your personal and business needs. This joint-hand service with PT Pos Indonesia provides you an economical and efficient way of sending money. We will advise our correspondent postal administration to issue money order directly to designated payee according to the specified remittance details. With over 200 post offices in Indonesia offering remittance service, you can rely on our Postal Remittance Service as a better alternative to the conventional way of remitting money.
Postal Remittance Service is available at all post offices in Hong Kong.
Wide Service Coverage
With a wide distribution of post offices throughout Indonesia, the remittance can reach even very remote places there.
Remittance made in Hong Kong will be converted from Hong Kong Dollars to US Dollars equivalent and then remitted to Indonesia. The currency to be collected by recipients is Indonesian Rupiah.
The maximum remittance amount per money order is USD2,000.
Economical & Reliable
The service fee is economical and is listed below.
