  • No beneficiary deduct fee2

Sending money overseas in foreign currency also has benefits as you can avoid any hidden fees.

Why send in foreign currency?

  • Sending in foreign currency means you have clarity about the exchange rate

  • You can send in over 130 local currencies

  • Know how much is going to be received before you send

  • With Western Union Business Solutions you will pay a $30 up front transfer fee.

All you need to send money overseas is the recipients full name, street address, complete name and address of the beneficiary bank and their IBAN (international Bank Account Number) if you are sending to Europe, Account number for other countries and the beneficiaries bank code (sort code, SWIFT, address or routing number) and clear purpose of payment (some countries due to regulatory requirements may require additional information).
