“The new Western Union electronic Affidavit is consistent with our goal to offer fast, reliable and convenient money transfer services while connecting families with their loved ones in Cuba,” said Victoria Lopez-Negrete, senior vice president and general manager, North America, Western Union.

Western Union has provided money transfer services from the U.S. to Cuba since 1999. Today, Western Union has more than 220 Agent locations in Cuba and pays consumer money transfers in Cuban Convertible Pesos across Cuba.
