Kathmandu, February 28:

Western Union announced a strategic tie up with Nepal Bank Ltd (NBL) to provide inbound money transfer services across the country through its primary agent Hulas Remittance, at a press meet organised in the capital today.

Western Union (WU) money transfer service will now be available from 25 banking offices of Nepal Bank Ltd from its branch offices at Kathmandu, Pokhara, Biratnagar and Nepalgunj at the first phase of the services.
