Sending Money to Central African Republic

When sending money to Central African Republic it’s important to compare your bank’s rates & fees with those we have negotiated with our partner money transfer providers. To get a better deal you should follow these 3 simple steps :

  1. Open an account with a provider (id docs may be required)
  2. You specify the local or Central African Franc amount you want to transfer
  3. Make a local currency domestic transfer for the requested amount to the provider's bank account in your country
  4. Once your funds are received by the provider the converted XAF amount will be transfered to the recipient account you specify in Central African Republic.

You can save around 5% and maybe more - end result is more Central African Franc deposited into the recipient bank account in Central African Republic and less margins and fees kept by the banks!
