Where can I use my TransferWise debit Mastercard?

Generally, you can use your TransferWise card wherever Mastercard is accepted. If you see the Mastercard logo, you’re good to go.

However, there are a few countries where your card won't work at the moment:

Afghanistan, Burma (Myanmar), Cuba, Eritrea, Iran, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Laos, Liberia, Libya, Nauru, North Korea, Palestinian Territories, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, Burundi, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo and the DR of Congo, Sudan and South Sudan.

You can use your TransferWise card to make online payments, too. For some online payments, you'll be asked to approve the payment from your TransferWise app, or by using a code sent by SMS or voice call. This is called a 3D Secure (3DS) online payment, and is an added level of security some websites ask for. Once you approve, your payment will go through as normal.

At the moment, we only support 3DS payments for cards issued in the UK and European Economic Area (EEA). But we’re working hard to make this available everywhere.
