  2. Hello,money was sent to me from India into my friends account three days ago but all I was told was that I should go into the bank(gtbank) tell them that money was sent to me,state his name and I would be able to get the equivalent of the money in niara. Now, gtbank tells me they don’t deal with rupees or lakh, and I should send the information given to me by the sender to fx gtbank.com or something, it is very confusing. Can you please explain to me how I will be able to withdraw the money. Also, I haven’t gotten an alert. Thank you

    Ps: I have a Dom acc with union Bank. But it’s a savings Dom acc. If the above details are correct, how many days will it take for my account to be credited as it’s a savings Dom acc not current. And can I cash out in dollars?

    1. Which one is savings Dom account??? Domiciliary is Domiciliary account. There is nothing like savings Dom account, please.

      As per your friend sending you money from USA,simply send your Domiciliary account details (if you have one) to him or her.
      Your account details that you should send to him/her include;
      1. account name.
      2. account number.
      3. bank name
      4. bank swiftcode.
      5. bank branch(optional). If he/she is sending to your domiciliary account, within 72 working hours(2 -5 days) you should receive the money.

  17. Hi Emma, I found your article very resourceful. Thanks for that. Please I have a question, is there any financial rule or restrictions that prevents Indians from sending money abroad? I have a friend that claims India government doesn’t allow money out of the country. Now, I wish for you to tell me how he can send money from India to Nigeria and what I need to do to receive money in my bank account? Awaiting your quick response. Thank you and God bless.

    1. There are so many ways to send money from India to Nigeria. However, the best way is via direct wire transfer. Provide your bank details: bank swift code, bank name, account name and number, branch; let he/she wire the money.

  18. Hi Emma! I pray God rewards you for this great informative work you are doing. My question is: I did an online referral job and in the list of options for payment I chose visa. In the space provided for account number I typed the 16digits on my diamond bank visa debit card. I just want to know if payments from abroad can actually be done through that means; and if yes how long will it take for me to receive the money in my diamond savings account. Thanks!

    1. Yes, payment can be done through that means but you suppose to type your Diamond bank account number(10digit number) NOT the 16digits number on my diamond bank visa debit card. When you input your account number correctly, expect the money within five(5) working days or business days.

    But I want to ask (1)…is the $20 not to small to send becos l am considering the transfer charge that may be incured?

    (2)…I have all my GTB Dom Acct detail to give to her…would she just to any bank there in the US to do the Bank wire transfer?

    Thank you 1ce again for this platfom and also in anticipation of your response!!!

    1. Hello Prince,
      1. If she has more than $20 to send to you, let her send it. But you said… “I wanted to test my newly opened Dom account…” then let her send the $20. Remember, you can withdraw such low denomination in Nigeria.
      2. She suppose to her account over there in US.
