    Frequently Asked Questions

    How much money can I send to Nepal?

    You can send up to £8,000 to Nepal from the UK, which works out at approximately 1.2 million NPR (dependent on current conversion rate).

    How can I send money to a mobile phone in Nepal?

    To send money to a mobile phone in Nepal, you’ll need to make sure your receiver has activated a mobile wallet with one of our partner mobile phone operators in the country – such as eSewa. You can then use their mobile number to transfer the money, via an online debit or credit3 card payment.

    How do I send money to Nepal from a Western Union® agent location?

    If you prefer to do things in-person or want to pay by cash, you can use our locator tool to find your nearest Western Union® agent location.

    Once you get to your agent location, you’ll need to go to the counter and speak to our friendly staff. They’ll ask how much you want to send to Nepal and request the receiver’s details. They may also ask you for a form of ID such as your driving license or passport, and proof of funds – bring a recent bank statement or payslip in case.

    You can then pay the amount with cash or a card, and you’ll be given a receipt with your tracking number (MTCN). Don’t forget to share this with the receiver in Nepal too.

    How do I estimate the cost to transfer money to Nepal?

    You can find out how much your money transfer to Nepal might cost using our pricing estimator. This shows you the approximate exchange rate for your payment, as well as the transfer fee3.

    Just enter the amount of Nepalese rupees you want to send and find out how much this will cost you in British pounds. You can also do this vice versa.
