In over 200 countries, many people use Western Union Quick and Secure services to send / receive money from friends, Family and business associates living abroad.

Until now, to receive Western Union Money Transfer, one would need to visit an Authorized Agent (GTB, UBA, First Bank etc) Fill out a form containing senders Name, Address, MTCN 10 Digit number, Amount expected, Provide a valid identification document (National ID, Drivers license or Voters Card) and enter last 4 digits of the MTCN Number on a Keypad.

The method explained above still works but there are two more easier ways that have been launched.

Western Union has launched Account Based Money Transfer (ABMT) which allows you to quickly receive money directly into your GTBank Account online real-time! without the need to visit any Agent office.
NOTE: You'll Need to have activated GT Internet Banking and Obtained Token Device. Visit a branch near you to do this.
