How to send money to Uganda in 3 steps

The exact transfer method you need to follow will depend on the provider you choose to handle the transaction, but you will usually need to:

  1. Choose a provider and register for a free account.This can often be done online, and you will need to provide your full name, your contact details and proof of ID.
  2. Enter your transaction information. You’ll need to tell the provider where you’re sending money, how much you’ll be sending and who will be receiving the transfer.
  3. Pay for your transfer. You can then pay for and submit your transfer request, making sure you keep any reference number you are given so that you can monitor the progress of your transaction.

How do I compare money transfer companies when sending money to Uganda?

As with any product, you’ll find the best deal by shopping around. When you’re using our table to compare, keep the following in mind:

  • Exchange rate and fees. Make sure you compare both. While one company might offer a great rate, it might charge higher fees. On the other hand, a company offering a poorer rate may have low or zero fees. Equally, some providers will waive fees if you’re transferring a larger amount.
  • Pick up methods. Some transfer companies require that you transfer funds to the recipient’s bank account. Others give recipients the option of picking up cash, which can be particularly useful if the recipient does not have a bank account.
  • Transfer methods. If you’re dealing with a mainstream bank you can visit a branch to transfer funds. Otherwise, depending on the service provider you choose, you can transfer funds over the phone, on an app, online, at stores or at specific kiosks.
  • Transfer time. If the recipient needs money in a hurry, your best bet is to look for a service that allows cash pickups because this method normally takes no more than a day. Bank account transfers can take between one and five business days.
  • Minimum transfer amounts. The minimum you can transfer can vary from one service provider to the next. While some may let you transfer as little as one Great Britain pound, some others have minimum limits as high as £1,000.
  • Customer service. If you plan on transferring money to Uganda on an ongoing basis, you may want to look for a company that offers high levels of customer service, along with support via phone, chat and email.
