It is very easy to receive money through us. First, locate your nearest BK Western Union Agent in Rwanda, then make your way to the Agent location.
Sending and receiving funds
In order to send funds, a sender goes to a Western Union office and presents funds (plus fees) for "Money in Minutes" service. A sender provides his or her name and address, the recipient's name, and a designated payment destination.
Western Union then provides the sender a 10-digit Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN) that must be transmitted separately by the sender to the recipient. The recipient then proceeds to a Western Union agent office in the designated payment location, presents the 10-digit MTCN and a photo ID. Money is then paid out to the recipient.
If a recipient lacks identification documents, the sender and receiver can set up a pre-arranged password.
Sending fees are based on western union tariffs and receivers don’t pay any fees.
