    Sorry if this question has been asked before. Please direct me to any previous similar post if possible.

    I would like to know, if you are a Tanzanian living abroad (say US, UK, GE or any other developed country) and would like to
    send some cash to a fellow friend/family in Tanzania, what quick and reliable possible options are there?

    Mabenki mengi yana account zake US, UK au Germany. Kwa mfano CRDB, NBC, NMB have accounts in Germany Frankfurt. Unachotakiwa kufanya uliza benki husika wakupe account namba yao huko huko kama wanayo, then unatranfer kwenye hiyo account "Kwenye form" utaandika for further processing to an account in Tanzania. This method is cheap and in some countries in europe is free of charge, mie nilishaitumia nilipokuwa Germany.

    Otherwise you you can use other expensive means like T.T, Western Union, Moneygram etc.

    How fast do you want it be transferred? I have been making regular transfers through internet banking to my recipients' bank accounts in Tanzania, it takes 3 days, cheap and reliable. If you need instant transfers, Western Union could be an option.
