Post Bank – Uganda Introduces Diaspora Classic Banking

Posted January 11, 2013 by Ugandan Diaspora News Team in Business ~ 29,931 views


Post Bank Diaspora Classic Banking is designed mainly for you, a Ugandan residing in a foreign country. Operating this account offers you the opportunity of maintaining an account in Uganda while resident abroad.

Why you need this account

Many Ugandans transfer funds to relatives, friends and acquaintances to meet obligations back home Quite often, it costs too much to go through traditional money transfer or banking processes to send money home. This is unfortunate as funds transferred from abroad are often relied upon by parents and relatives for survival.

Unfortunately, it often happens that the funds sent home are diverted and they do not serve their intended purposes. Sometimes, emergencies arise leading to many stalled projects in Uganda as funds take too long to be delivered.

Ugandans abroad are skeptical about keeping or investing funds at home due to risks of being duped and relatives diverting funds.

Account benefits

• Easy to maintain
• Unlimited withdraws
• No monthly charges
• Interest is calculated monthly and paid twice annually (June and December)

    so proud to see postbank reach such heights. bravo!


    I have no Uganda document that prove that am Ugandan! Will I still be able to open the account ?


    You don’t have to prove that you are Ugandan, what is required is a positive identity of yourself, such passport issued by any country, driving permit etc –


    The link seems to be not working, I got a unsecured certificate warning then I a server error 404 file or directory not found. These are things that they really need to address as it leaves one doubting if this a secure way of conducting business with the bank
