Zenith Bank Suspends International Transaction On Naira Cards


Zenith Bank has suspended international transactions on its naira card from Monday, January 9, 2023.

It also temporarily suspended international transactions on automated teller machines (ATMs), and point of sale (POS) channels.

In the latest announcement, Zenith Bank said customers will be unable to use its naira cards for international cash withdrawals, including web and POS transactions.

The development may likely exacerbate the plight of Nigerians who shop from online stores such as Amazon, as they will no longer be able to pay with their naira cards.

See below;


“Please be informed that you will be unable to use your Zenith Bank naira cards for international automated teller machine (ATM) cash withdrawals, POS transactions and web transactions with effect from Monday, January 9th, 2023,” the notice reads.

“If you have international spend requirements, simply visit any of our branches and request for a foreign currency debit or prepaid card, which are available in US dollar, pounds and euro variants.”

As Nigeria’s foreign exchange (FX) crisis worsens and threatens the survival of businesses, many financial institutions also made similar decisions.
