Western Union money transfers from Greece to restart


Western Union on Monday announced the resumption of its service for forwarding money abroad from Greece, with a cap of 500 euros per customer per month, following the latest easing of the Greek capital controls.

“Together with our agents, we have been working hard to restore Western Union services fully in Greece. This has been a priority for us since the commencement of the enforced bank holiday in late June as we have sought to help our customers in Greece through this difficult financial time,” said Giovanni Angelini, senior vice president and general manager for Europe at Western Union.
