Western Union's global digital money-moving capabilities were enhanced in the UAE as a part of the company's deep commitment to keeping this nation at the forefront of the digital revolution.
The company launched the Western Union® mobile app and relaunched the Westernunion.com website, in association with local agent, Al Fardan Exchange, one of the leading financial services providers in the country.
Customers in the UAE can now connect to their families and loved ones around the world digitally with the choice to pay for transactions online or within the app via direct transfers from their bank accounts set up in the UAE.
Western Union's digital services in the UAE will enable direct money transfers for payout at Western Union's retail network of more than 525,000 agent locations in more than 200 countries and territories, or directly into billions of bank accounts worldwide.
To commemorate the launch, Western Union has announced a transfer fee1 of Dh15 per transaction for sending up to Dh18,000.
Western Union has been providing money-transfer services in the UAE for over 20 years and has more than 800 retail agent locations2 in the country. Customers still have the choice to access these locations to send money transfers in person, reflecting the company's commitment to providing choice and options to connect to families and friends around the world. 
Western Union also makes money from currency exchange.
