Why is my wire to/from Venezuela taking so long?

Our remittance transfers are affected by the recent actions of the United States government regarding transfers to Venezuela. To learn more please click here.

Because of these changes, while we may continue to take and process your transfer orders to Venezuela, we cannot say with certainty when they will be processed by Western Union or any other funds transfer intermediary.  Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee delivery by a date certain to any person in Venezuela.
