Important Information About Entropay


There's some important changes to the availablity of Entropay virtual Visa cards coming into effect at the start of November 2018. It will no longer be available outside the European Economic Area and all cards from affected countries will be permanentky deleted.

Why The Changes?

New rules and regulations that have been applied to card issuers mean that the virtual Visa card provided by Entropay will not be permitted outside of the EEA from November 1st 2018. On this date, all cards from outside the region will be cancelled and any funds transferred back to Entropay virtual wallets. After this date, funds in the wallets can be transferred to bank accounts, with no cut-off date.

It's already not possible to top up Entropay cards from outside of the EEA, or Norway.

Along with Norway, the countries within the EEA, where Entropay will still be available from 1st November are the following;

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstien, Lithuania, Lucembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

The current position of the UK after it leaves the European Union on March 29th 2019 is still not clarified, so it may become an excluded country. 

The changes are outside of the control of Entropay.
