From noon today onwards customers of the company Western Union can transfer money to all foreign countries, including Bulgaria, the monthly limit being 500 euro, as announced by the company Paylink, the representative of Western Union for Greece. Money transfers to customers in Greece have also been resumed, their limit being 6,000 euro per transaction.
    To recall that the company halted money transfers from Greece when the government of Alexis Tsipras decided to introduce capital controls in the country on 29 June 2015. Until that date, the branches of Western Union allowed money transfers abroad to the amount of up to 6,300 euro per transaction.
    Western Union has more than 1,000 branches throughout Greece, where customers can send cash abroad or receive money from foreign countries without having a bank account, just upon presenting an ID card or passport. The company offers money transfers from credit or debit cards and e-banking on the website
    Its branches are open on Saturdays and Sundays and until late in the evening on weekdays, and were very popular among customers.
