Send money to the UK

Did you know that you can send money online to the UK from Sweden in minutes* with Western Union? This means you can be there for your loved ones regardless of how many miles are between you.

Here's how our money in minutes* service works.



Send money to the UK in minutes*


Register for free or log in at westernunion.se.

Choose the UK as your destination.

Decide how much money you want to transfer overseas.

Enter your credit or debit card details and we'll begin processing your request immediately.

Take note of your unique tracking number and pass it on to your receiver. They’ll need it to pick up their cash at their nearest agent location.


If you're not particularly confident at using the internet, you can also access money in minutes* over the phone or in person at any of our Western Union agent locations.



Send money to the UK to a bank account*

If you're planning on sending money from Sweden to the UK on a regular basis, you might prefer to use our direct-to-bank* service instead.

This allows you to send regular financial support to a friend or family member in the UK every week or month so you can always be there in spirit, even when you're physically not.


To send money to a bank account in the UK:

Log in or register for free online at westernunion.se

Choose an amount to send, as well as where you want to send it.

Type in your receiver’s international bank account details.

Finally, enter your own credit or debit card details. Your money should arrive in the UK within 2 business days.



Customer identification with Western Union

If you plan to send money regularly using Western Union's online services, we will need to verify your identity. Once your ID is verified your send limit will increase.
