The United Kingdom remains a top destination for thousands of Nigerians who hop on the “Japa” train as it provides a stellar educational system for international students and better economic opportunities. If you have loved ones in the UK who depend on you for financial assistance then you are in luck because today’s article will provide a step-by-step guide on how you can send money from Nigeria to the United Kingdom without any hassle.

With the “Japa” rate increasing significantly every year, many Nigerians are left with no other choice but to bid farewell to loved ones who relocate to the United Kingdom in search of greener pastures. And while this is hard, sending money to your loved ones relocating or based in the United Kingdom doesn’t have to be a dreadful process.

Unarguably, cross-border payments seem to have gotten a little less difficult due to the advent of online money transfer services that offer competitive rates, faster processing time and security during online payments. And on this note, we recommend that you use Vella’s “Global Pay” service for your payments within and outside Africa.
