The monthly international spend limit on the debit and prepaid Naira cards of United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc has been reviewed upward from $100 to $2,000.
The bank, in a statement issued on Wednesday, disclosed that the upward review was “immediate” and represents 1,900 percent rise, allowing customers to withdraw up to $2,000 per month as against $100 previously obtainable.
This was done in response to the growing demand for higher limits by customers who make international transactions, the lender explained.
It is also an indication of the improved confidence in the Nigerian economy as shown by increased foreign exchange in the financial system, it said further.
Commenting on this, UBA’s Executive Director in charge of Operations & Technology, Mr Chukwuma Nweke, explained that the move is intended to enable more convenient and seamless transactions when making purchases outside the country.
“This is in recognition of the customers’ needs and expectations. The new limit has been implemented,” he said.
According to Mr Nweke, with the significant review, customers will now be able to carry out enhanced cross border transactions priced in foreign currency using their debit, credit cards with improved satisfaction.
He explained that customers will now be able to carry out more transactions with ease and at their convenience.
“This gives our customers the opportunity to make international payments on POS and Web. In addition, you can make ATM withdrawals subject to the current limit of $100/day,” he said.
Continuing, he said, “This only goes to show that, customers are at the core of our business and our unalloyed commitment to satisfying them with nothing short of unequalled service is not compromised. We remain focused on creating superior and sustainable service delivery, unique to UBA “
UBA’s customer-centric focus is on continually developing innovative, technological and customer-driven services to boost customer-experience
