We all know that, it is not fair, we are aware that, they are trying to tackle corruption but the advantage, they have taken is not right but too wrong to be fair.

So below are the list, if you are a Nigerian both within and outside, you all know that this is wrong but we do not know what to do, so i decided to search for other option and I got it right well working.

Alternatives to Use ATM Card Abroad without Nigeria ATM Card

As we are reviewing this, please try and enjoy it. Look for the option that best suits your time, choice and then your purpose. Read in between lines and choose carefully:-

1. Payoneer MasterCard :– is a universal credit card for paying and buying online. Payoneer is free of charge for anyone who wants it. You can use this card to withdraw your PayPal fund via ATM; and pay for any kind of goods online. It is better and faster than any card your local bank gives to you.

If you are interested in using this method then you can order it and it takes only 3weeks before it will be delivered to your house address.

There are some certain things you are required to provide but before that, you are to visit the official website portal for registration of Payoneer Here

Then after which, you are required to provide a valid scanned copy of your ID card like international passport/Drivers license/National ID card or even you voter’s ID card and then a Scanned copy of your clear passport and you are done. All you need it to fund it possibly through digital money exchangers in the country and you are good to go.

2. Using Western Union Money Transfer unit of First Bank:- This type of Western Union Money Transfer is for now an acceptable means of sending money abroad. With this second option, we belief that other money transfer methods like Money Gram would be feasible.

3. Using Dollar Master Card:– This is only reliable for those of you banking with GTB plc. All you have to do is to walk in and require for a dollar account,(this dollar account might still be in your possession after creating savings account).

So you can just walk into any GTBank branch closer to you and demand for Dollar Master Card. Probably, you can get it the rate of $50 (Not sure whether it has increase or not) but with this dollar master card, you can do everything online, foreign site and even withraw in naira using the local atm machine.

4. Using Zenith Websurfer Master Card:- This is another great and wonderful alternative to to banned MasterCard usage abroad.

But this websurfer MasterCard that is being issued by Zenith Bank is so great. Websufer is not a credit card that you can use to withdraw cash from the ATM machine. It is a low limit card that can only be used on the internet.

So to get your Websurfer MasterCard, just look for where the nearest Zenith Bank is and meet their customer service and request for a websurfer account opening form.

But before you can, there are some certain things you will have before going to the bank and they are listed below:- 1 Passport photo => A Valid National ID Card or otherwise => Least $150 cash.

This is the best alternative to the CBN banned MasterCard Abroad. If there is anymore alternative, please you can comment below but if you don’t have then we will try and update in our blog here!
