Can I use my prepaid card outside of the U.S.?

Check your cardholder agreement to see if you can use your prepaid card outside of the United States and if there are any restrictions on how you can use it.

You might be able to use your prepaid card for purchases or ATM withdrawals outside of the U.S., but some may charge foreign transaction fees. Not all cards can be used outside the United States, so check your cardholder agreement before you travel or use your card as payment in a foreign currency.

The prepaid card provider will require you to register your card by providing certain personal information to the prepaid card provider in order to use your card internationally. This personal information is used to  verify your identity.
