  • Money transfer to AIS Debit Card

    If your receiver owns an AIS debit card, you need the 16-digit card number and the recipient's 11-digit identity card number only - and you're ready to start a money transfer to AIS Debit Card.

    • Transactions to debit cards are processed swiftly - normally within a few hours on business days and within 48 hours on bank holidays.
    • Your receiver in Cuba doesn't own an AIS Debit Card? No problem! If your recipient doesn't have a card already, our partner FINCIMEX will issue an AIS debit card to him. This card is available for collection at the closest FINCIMEX office nearby. Within 5 business days in offices located in La Habana or within 15 business days in other provinces of Cuba.
  • Cash pick-up

    With his identification document the recipient can withdraw the money at 451 branches in the country.

    • We recommend cash pick-up for recipients who do not have a bank account in Cuba and/or non-Cubans (like tourists).
    • Cash money is available within 3 to 10 business days at the selected bank in Cuba.
    • In order to ensure a smooth transaction, your information about the receiver must be exactly the same as on the ID card of your recipient. Including: First and last name, address and ID number. For Cubans usually the Cedula ID number (11 digits), for non-Cubans the ID number of the passport (max. 11 digits) plus first and last name, the Cuban address (hotel, house of rent) and the nationality of the receiver.

    Usually an AIS debit card from American International Service is recommendable. This card is very common in Cuba and widely accepted as a means of payment.

  • Bank transfer to Cuba

    You can make a transfer direct to a bank account at Banco Metropolitano.
