We no longer accept payments from Western Union or similar organisations (Moneygram, etc.). We tried in the past and it was a disaster. Western Union blocked our account after we received a third payment as they suspected us of illegal activities when they identified three payments from three different countries. We were unable to unblock our account as their customer service department is hopeless. We don’t even know if the unfortunate applicants were able to get their money back. Experience has taught us that using Western Union or an equivalent payment solution is not at all suitable when many people from different countries send money to ‘one and the same recipient’ in another country.
If you don’t have a bank account (so can’t make a transfer, use a payment card, or are restricted by government regulations in your country), we accept payment in crypto currencies such as Bitcoins. This is probably the best and most effective solution, if you don’t have a bank account.
A friend or relative can also pay the application fee on your behalf. Simply give your friend access to your Application Space so that he/she can access the payment page.
