ATMs and Western Union

The most efficient way to get money to a U.S. citizen in Afghanistan is to deposit money in that person’s U.S. bank account, and have the person withdraw the money in Afghanistan using an ATM card.

If that option is not possible, we suggest wiring money through Western Union by following the instructions on their website. You may also contact them in by phone at 1-800-425-1851 in the United States, or by finding a local agent in Kabul, Afghanistan by clicking here.
