We propose a strategy for perfect state transfer in spin chains based on the use of an unmodulated coupling Hamiltonian whose coefficients are explicitly time dependent. We show that, if specific and nondemanding conditions are satisfied by the temporal behavior of the coupling strengths, our model allows perfect state transfer. The paradigm put forward by our proposal holds the promises to set an alternative standard to the use of clever encoding and coupling-strength engineering for perfect state transfer.
