Xpress Money

SINCE ITS independence from Britain in 1956, Ghanaians have become truly global. In fact, as of 2015, there were twice as many Ghanaians living abroad (801,710) compared to immigrants coming into the country (399,471), according to the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance.

With 3% of its citizens living and working abroad, Nigeria is the most common location choice for Ghanaians, accounting for over a quarter (27%) of the country’s emigrants, while the US (17%) and the UK (13%), make up 30%. So, if you’re a Ghanaian living abroad, what options do you have if you need to send money to loved ones back home?

How your loved ones can access money in Ghana

When sending money abroad, it’s likely your first concern is finding the easiest method for you to send and the recipient to collect the cash. We can offer you a variety of different ways to ensure your loved ones get the help they need.

• Cash transfers– According to the Ghanaian Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, over 70% of the population doesn’t have a bank account, leaving most reliant on cash. If this is the case, you can send cash to cash payments to any of our 450 pay-out locations across Ghana

• Bank Transfers – Those whose beneficiaries have a bank account in Ghana can send money from any one of our 350 UK locations to any bank in Ghana, such as Zenith Bank, Global Access Savings and Loans Bank, and Universal Merchant Bank

• Cash to Mobile Wallet – Mobile money is growing rapidly across the world, so one way to send money quickly and easily is to a mobile wallet. This is the same as a physical wallet, but it’s an app that your beneficiary can download on his/her phone. It will allow him/her to store money, make payments and send money to other mobile wallets. Simple, easy and effective
