In which countries are payments restricted or impossible?

Modified on Mon, 27 Nov 2023 at 02:42 PM

Due to increased security risks, payments in certain countries are only possible to a limited extent or not at all.

These payments are strictly monitored by us and are divided into 3 categories. High-risk countries are countries in which card fraud is increasing or which are not subject to the general visa guidelines.


You do NOT have to inform us before traveling to these countries.
