Citibank Announces Remittance Service to Mexico with No Transfer Fees


Send money home for the holidays and also help flood victims in Tabasco and Chiapas by contributing to a special Banamex account using Citibank® Global Transfers!

New York – Today Citibank announced it is waiving transfer fees on its remittance service to Mexico - just in time for the holidays. Now, clients can visit any Citibank Financial Center and Citibank ATM and send money back home to family and friends living in Mexico using Citibank® Global Transfers (CGTs).

“Citibank’s no transfer fee remittance service to Mexico is a great example of how Citi leverages its global reach and innovative financial solutions to meet the financial needs of our clients – at home and abroad,” said Peter Knitzer, Chairman & CEO Citibank. “This is another example of Citibank and Banamex working together to build bridges between the Mexican community in the United States and their friends and relatives living in Mexico.”

The no transfer fee remittance service allows Citibank customers in the United States to send up to $3,000 per business day to Mexico. This service has NO transfer fee, and funds are available immediately either in a Banamex account or to be picked up in cash at any Banamex branch.

Also, customers can use this remittance service to help flood victims in Tabasco and Chiapas by sending donations to a specially created Banamex account: input account 0100120, select the amount you would like to send (up to $3,000 USD), and input recipient “Fomento Social Banamex”.

Clients must have a Citibank account. If you do not have an account with Citibank and would like to take advantage of this great service, the solution is easy: open an Access Account with Citibank or the account most appropriate for you. The Access Account is designed for individuals who may have never had a bank account or who wish to have an account that is inexpensive, easy to open and manage.

The Access account offers a wide variety of Citibank’s services, such as statements in Spanish, online banking in Spanish and free financial education seminars in Spanish.

With this remittance service, Citibank and Banamex will help the Mexican community access financial services both in the United States and in Mexico. Clients have access to a wide variety of financial products, such as checking and savings accounts, secured credit cards, loans and other financial solutions.

The Access Account was developed as part of Citibank’s ongoing commitment to provide the best in class products and services to the Hispanic community.
