GTBank Naira Mastercard Can Be Used For Foreign Transactions Now

Honestly, it has being a difficult period for most people since Nigerian banks set limits on naira Master cards usage for foreign transaction. I have received a lot of messages from people trying to pay for one thing or the other on foreign websites but were unable because of the limitations but now it has been taking care of.

Your GTBank Naira Mastercard can now be used to shop on foreign sites such as AliExpress, Gearbest, Amazon, Google Playstore and even pay for Facebook adverts with a monthly limit of $1000

Though I have been making use of my GTBank Naira Mastercard and Dollar card for foreign transactions, some people who don't have a dollar card and couldn't use the Naira Mastercard for paying for goods and services online had to resort to using barter virtual cards. But now, am sure they will be glad at this latest development.


As at yesterday, GTB charges N380 per dollar which is still very much on the high side and I’m not comfortable with that. However, if you already have a dollar account, you might not need to use your naira master card, simply fund it from your Domiciliary account or just buy dollars from Bureau de’change and initiate your transaction; but if you don’t, then you can make use of your Naira Master card.


✔ The transaction limit is now $1000 per month
✔️ It is convenient and simple to use
✔ No need of visiting the ATM centers or bank halls to make transactions
✔️ It's fast.

✔ You can only withdraw $300 daily.
✔️ If you aren't careful, your Mastercard could be stolen and manipulated.

Recall that few days ago, Guaranty Trust Bank was awarded the best bank in Nigeria by an organization known as Euromoney.

  1. I was the happiest person when i got this message from Gtbank and i didn't hesitate to share it with friends.

    With this development now in place, I'm gonna order any phone of my choice from AliExpress.

  2. Based on what i gathered from the bank, a person can't spend more than $300 in a day and you can't spend $1000 at once.

    We still have some hidden restrictions.

    Thanks for making this official

    1. I'm of the opinion that other banks will definitely key in to this because they won't want their customers to start running to Gtbank.

      Let's just wait and see the next bank that will join the queue.
