1. Funds may be delayed or services unavailable based on certain factors, including the amount sent, destination country, currency availability, regulatory issues, identification requirements, agent location hours, differences in time zones, and selection of delayed delivery options. Additional restrictions may apply; see our terms and conditions for details.
*Fees at agent locations may differ from online fees. You can check prices at Western Union agent locations by calling 1-800-235-0000. Factors that may affect price include local laws and both your location and your receiver’s. If you add or change services, the price may change.
Money transfers will normally be paid in the currency of the destination country. In some countries, payment is available in U.S. dollars or other alternate currency. In addition to the transfer fees applicable to each transaction, Western Union will apply a currency exchange rate to convert your funds into foreign currency. Any difference between the currency exchange rate given offered to customers and the currency exchange rate received by Western Union will be kept by Western Union (and, in some instances, its agents) in addition to the transfer. Western Union also makes money from currency exchange. When choosing a money transmitter, carefully compare both transfer fees and exchange rates. Fees and foreign exchange rates may vary by brand, channel, and location based on a number of factors and are subject to change without notice. Fees and rates provided are not guaranteed.
SENDING TO COUNTRIES THAT PROVIDE PAYMENT IN MULTIPLE CURRENCIES
Some Western Union Agents may offer Receivers the choice to receive funds in a currency different from the one that you selected. In such instances, Western Union (or its Agents) may make additional money when your funds are converted into the currency selected by the receiver. However, your recipient may, in some countries, elect to receive another currency, in which case the currency exchange rate that Western Union applies to your transaction may differ from the one applicable to a transaction paid in the currency you selected.
