    Hi Gbenga,

    I got the UBA Africard (Naira) but i wasn’t happy cos i linked it to my Paypal account and when i transfer funds to my Africard, UBA automatically converts it to Naira at 408 when the official bank rate is now over 500.

    Few days ago, i got the UBA Africard (Dollar) but when i went to a UBA branch yesterday to withdraw funds, they said i CANNOT withdraw dollars from my card.

    Which was weird.

    Can you please confirm if your able to withdraw dollars from your card?

    1. Gbenga says

      Hello Kay Kay, thanks for reaching out.

      Commercial banks HAVE their own rates which are in conformity with CBN regulations, and these are very different from the unofficial black market rates.

      There are very few terminals (POS/ATM) that pay in USD in Nigeria currently as CBN continues to frown at dollarization (local use and circulation of dollars) so you might not get one nearby.

      That being said, once you receive your funds in your USD prepaid card, you can visit any UBA to apply for a USD withdrawal from your prepaid card…they will give you your cash in hand. You can also transfer same to your USD bank account if you have one, you can shop with it online as well.

      I hope this helps.

      You can also reach me @ [email protected] for further clarifications.

      I think you should transfer the money to a dollar account of another bank coz people usually withdraw in dollars
