Zenith Bank, one of the leading promoters of Mastercard products in Nigeria is now issuing Visa credit, debit and prepaid cards as well. The leading Nigerian bank announced the new range of Visa cards about a month ago:
Zenith Bank Plc has taken its drive for cashless transactions to new levels with the launch of dual currency VISA credit card capable of being used for both Dollar and Naira transactions.
This dual currency functionality allows transactions carried out by the cardholder to be denominated in Dollars while abroad and transactions performed at home reported in Naira.
Cardholders who want Visa now have more options.
Among other benefits to the customers, the VISA credit card which comes in three variants: classic, gold and platinum eliminates the challenge of currency conversion for local transactions because of its dual currency nature even as it offers users an enhanced secure payment channel through the use of the ‘EMV’ or pin and chip technology, the latest and safest card technology in the world.
Zenith Bank Visa Prepaid
The Zenith Bank Visa Prepaid card offers you the recognition of a globally accepted payment card with the convenience of a prepaid card. For just $20 a year, the Visa prepaid is the solution to most of your global payment needs. Simply pay at any Zenith Bank Branch and a Visa Prepaid card will be issued in your name with a limit of your choice. Alternatively, you can pick up a Zenith Vuxz non-personalized prepaid card.
The cards are reloadable and would work on the Internet as well as on Visa Point-of-sales terminals.
Zenith Bank Visa Credit Card
The Zenith Bank Visa Credit Card is a dual currency international credit card issued on Visa International platform accepted at more than 24 million shops and business locations in over 220 countries and at more than 900,000 ATM machines worldwide including Nigeria.
These come in 3 different ‘flavours’: Classic, Gold, Platinum and come with varying monthly and annual fees. They all allow card-to-card transfers, email statements and transaction notifications.
Other banks and ATMs
Access Bank, another leading bank, has been issuing Visa cards since last year and many of their ATMs are linked to the Visa network. Some 12 other banks in Nigeria have Visa accreditation but are yet to start issuing Visa cards though some ATMs of First Bank, Skye Bank and UBA are linked to the Visa network.
thanks for this info. Hope it works on the internet without any hassels such as belonging to ‘a Nigerian registered bank’.
I hope Zenith does not make it hard to get by demanding a host of requirements.
Thanks David for this information. However, the next question on everyone’s mind is what Tux just asked.
Will it be widely acceptable on the internet? I hope so. Anyone with confirmation of it’s acceptance by online merchants should please paste a comment here. Cheers.
i wish this card will solve the problem of internet transaction
Just like Tux and Naijaecash said,I just wish this visa card will be accepted online.David,thanks for the good job.
I hope the card is obtainable in all their branches. If not the bank should try to do so.
I got one of the cards in June and it has worked fine on a couple of websites. I got it at the branch right beside their Head Office on Ajose Adeogun street in Victoria Island, Lagos.
Reloading the card has been a headache as it appears reloading can only be done at that branch. Its a nightmare. 😳

I send $1,800.00 for Pin number. Has anyone been asked to pay for
Pin number?. I tried to use the card but it was denied twice. It was supposed to be loaded with some money. I called the sender but he told me I have to pay for the Pin to be sent to me.I have three Visa crds and I have never paid for Pin. I can use some help.
