Credit Card Notice
As a result of the ongoing challenge with foreign exchange availability, effective immediately and until further notice, you can only use up to a maximum of US$15,000 or up to your credit limit if your limit is less than US$15,000, per statement cycle. This change does not affect transactions on the TT$ side of your account.

  • These cards are also globally accepted, including in Europe and in the UK.
