Well, we have more answers for you.

Let’s take you through the international Kuda Card FAQs.

Coming sooner than soon, actually.

1. When is the international Kuda Card coming?

We’ll start delivering international cards in about two weeks from now.

Delivery will be in batches, with the first batch of cards going to everyone who has been using their existing card frequently.

If you’re one of those active card users, you’ve already heard from us. 🎉

2. Who is eligible for an international card?

Anyone who has upgraded their Kuda account by confirming their BVN (Bank Verification Number) and adding a valid ID card to their Kuda profile can request an international card.

Tip: You can get help with your account upgrade here.

3. I requested a card last year but I didn’t get one. Can I get an international card?

Yes, you can.

We’ve already put you on the priority list for international cards and you’ll get your card right after current active card users get theirs.

4. What will happen to the Kuda Card I have now?

As soon as you get an international Kuda Card and activate it, we’ll deactivate the Kuda Card you have now.

With a card that crosses borders, you won’t need a local card anymore. 🌏

5. Wait, is the international Kuda Card free?

Yes, the card is free but you’ll need to have at least 1,000 naira in your Kuda account to request one.

If you use your Kuda account actively, that shouldn’t be a big deal for you. It’s just a minimum balance for the card request, not a fee.

All the good stuff that comes with Kuda Cards won’t change.

This means we’ll deliver your international card free of charge and you won’t pay a maintenance fee.

You’ll also be able to make free cash withdrawals at selected ATMs across Nigeria.

With us, free will always be free.

You may have more questions about the international Kuda Card and we’d love to answer all of them as best as we can.
