Yes, it is no longer news that the Federal Govt and the Central bank has a bill that No Nigerian is allowed to make transaction abroad. That means, you can neither transfer, pay or perform business deals outside Nigeria using your ATM or Master Card. See the News Here.
This is very bad, students outsided has already protested about this but the FG gave them a dead ear. So the bill was passed on the 1st of January, 2016.
But today, there is one bank in Nigeria that hasn’t followed the rules and that is Guaranty Trust Bank. So, we will be showing you the step by step guide on how you can make international payment using either GTBanlk or MicoStar Mall.
GTBank Nigeria Can Make International Payment
One of the most popular and trusted bank in Nigeria, today has released a statement confirming that they are allowed to make international payment but in no doubt the Dollar will increase when making payment.
NOTE THAT:-Anybody making international payment using GTBank mastercard for payment, should note that at the very point of payment, you may be given the option of paying in Naira or the currency of the country you are transacting in, mainly in Dollars, Euro, Pounds, Yen, etc.
Anybody doing international transaction should also be advised that selecting the option of paying in Naira attracts an additional charge, which will make the total amount debited to your account higher than the amount which is normally displayed by the merchant.
This can be avoidable. For you to avoid the discrepancy or this difference in transaction amount, please do choose to pay in the currency of the country you are making payments, so as to ease the additional fee.
