Beneficiary Account Registration (BAR) Website

The BAR website allows U.S. financial institutions to pre-open an account at any Bansefi or participating L@Red de la Gente credit union branch for a third-party beneficiary in Mexico. The beneficiary then has 10 days to go to the selected branch, formalize the account and receive their money. By increasing financial access in Mexico and promoting bank usage, Bansefi has removed the obstacle in account-to-account remittances from the U.S. to Mexico.

Directo a México Website

The Directo a México website (Off-site) offers information about the service in Spanish and English tailored to both consumers and U.S. financial institutions. It also includes daily information on the foreign exchange rate use, frequently asked questions, and a U.S. financial institution branch locator tool.

Also available on the Directo a México website is a tutorial (Off-site) to aid users in explaining the service in a visual and hands on format.
