In-person transfers at agent locations

To transfer money to India using Western Union, you can follow these general steps:

Find a Western Union Agent Location: Locate a Western Union agent near your current location. You can use the Western Union website or mobile app to find the nearest agent.

Visit the WU international money transfer Agent Location: Go to the agent location with the necessary identification documents. You will need to bring a valid government-issued ID, such as a passport or driver's license.

Fill out the Send Money Form: Ask for a "Send Money" form and fill it out accurately with the required information. This includes your personal details, the recipient's information (name, address, and contact details), and the amount you wish to send.

Present the Required Funds: Provide the agent with the funds you want to transfer, including the principal amount you wish to send and any applicable fees.

Obtain the Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN*): After completing the transaction, the agent will provide you with a receipt containing the Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN). This number is essential for the recipient to collect the funds.

*The Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN) is an exclusive 10-digit tracking number allocated to your transfer. This MTCN, or tracking number, is needed to track your transfer within a matter of minutes. You can locate the MTCN on your transfer receipt or access it through your transfer History page.

Share Transfer Details with the Recipient: Inform the recipient of the transfer, providing them with the MTCN, your name, and other relevant details they may need to collect the funds.

Inform the Recipient to Collect the Funds: Instruct the recipient to visit their nearest Western Union agent location in India. They will need to provide their identification document and the transfer details to receive the money. Note: It's important to keep the receipt and MTCN in a safe place until the transfer is collected by the recipient.
