Cash pickup in Colombia - possible delays

Protests in Colombia may cause disruption for cash pick up from both banks and other pick up locations throughout the country.

Please ask the person who’s picking up the cash you sent to check the situation locally as some locations and banks might be open for shorter hours, or closed at the moment.

Some Nigerian cash pickup locations are only paying out in multiples of $10

Due to availability of notes at some pickup locations, recipients may encounter difficulties collecting their exact amount. For example, if they were sent $155 the recipient might only be able to pick up $150.

Recipients can try alternative pickup locations where there may be better availability.
