HAVANA, Jan 26. In recent days, the Central Bank of Cuba announced details on how money transfers would be made to the Island from abroad, given the measures to intensify the US blockade on the island,
which hinder the normal flow of family remittances.
The note outlined the correspondent banks of the Metropolitan, Popular Savings, and Credit and Commerce Banks, through which such transfers will be received.
In addition to insisting on the necessary clarity and accuracy of the beneficiary’s data in Cuba, it was specified that the number of remittance deliveries, to be credited to the accounts associated with the cards in USD, backed by freely convertible currency (MLC ), it does not have a preset limit, and it was recommended that to verify whether the transfer was received, the favoured person should check the balance of their account through one of the established electronic payment channels.
As is known, at this time no money transfer to Cuba from the United States can be made, due to the genocidal provisions of the Donald Trump administration, to hinder the arrival of money to the Greater Antilles.
Such measures, as the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla has repeatedly denounced, make Cuban emigrants the only ones in the world who cannot afford this type of aid with their families, and constitute a sign of the insistence of the Government of The United States in harming the Cuban people.
The correspondent banks to receive a monetary transfer from abroad are the following:
