Go to the nearest CCB branch. All you have to do is present a valid ID document, tell us where you want to send money, the amount you want to send, and the full name of the beneficiary.
Once you have deposited the amount you want to pay and the fee (Western Union can make a gain from the exchange rate difference), the Western Union operator will fill in the transfer information in the system and print a sending receipt.
Verify the receipt to make sure that the data is appropriately entered and sign it.
The receipt includes the money transfer control number (MTCN: a 10-digit number) and the amount paid.
Money can be received as soon as you receive the receipt with the MTCN number. Usually, the use of the service takes a few minutes, both when you send and when you receive money. This interval depends on the terms of the service, including the representative's working hours and the different time zones. In certain countries, in order to withdraw money, the recipient must tell the operator the money transfer control number (MTCN).
Go to the nearest CCB branch. All you need is a valid ID document. Tell the agent from which country the transfer is, the full sender's name, the exact amount you expect, and the MTCN.
To make the payment, the Western Union agent will verify your ID and the information you provide.
Check the data printed on the money receipt to make sure it is accurate and sign it. The agent will give you the money and the receipt.
Fees and commissions
The money transfer fees are standard and are only paid by the sender.
