Over 13,000 Western Union®


Bangladesh has used the taka since 1972, when it replaced the Indian Rupee as the country’s official currency. There are 100 poisha to a taka, and poisha coins are available in denominations of 5, 10, 25 and 50. A new series of taka notes was introduced in 2011, three years after the first 1,000 taka note was issued.

† Date available will be displayed on receipt for international transfers over $15. Service and funds availability depends on certain factors including the Service selected, the selection of delayed delivery options, special terms applicable to each Service, amount sent, destination country, currency availability, regulatory issues, consumer protection issues, identification requirements, delivery restrictions, agent location hours, and differences in time zones (collectively, “Restrictions”).

* Western Union also makes money from currency exchange. When choosing a money transmitter, carefully compare both transfer fees and exchange rates. Fees, foreign exchange rates and taxes may vary by brand, channel, and location based on a number of factors. Fees and rates subject to change without notice.
