Money in Minutes

If you need to send money to family or friends in a hurry, Western Union's Money in Minutes service is the answer.The procedure is simple, you pay in cash and very soon after it is available to be paid out to the beneficiary by a local Western Union agent. All you need to do is visit us, complete a simple form and provide us with proof of your identity and address (e.g passport plus Bank statement) and pay the amount you wish to send plus transfer fee. To complete the transaction we will give you a tracking number which you will need to pass on to the receiver.

Similarly, if you have been sent money using Western Union, call in with your tracking number and ID and we shall be pleased to pay you the amount due.

Bank Transfers

The procedure is similar to that for cash transfers. You will also need to know the beneficiary's bank details; in most cases this will consist of the SWIFTBIC (Bank Identifier Code) plus the Bank Name, Branch name or number and the account number. For a growing number of countries, including all the European Union member states, it is essential that as well as knowing the SWIFTBIC of the receiving bank, you also know the beneficiary's IBAN (International Bank Account Number).

Your money will be deposited in the receiver's bank account within one to three working days, depending on the destination country.
