When I send a Western Union Money Transfer, does the person receiving the money need to pay for anything?

For most countries there are no additional fees charged to the receiver. However, some countries may charge a small tax or fee for receiving the money to the receiver. These fees are due to local regulations and are not additional Western Union fees. You can see whether a country may charge additional fees by clicking the Rules & Regulations link for that country.
