Wirex virtual cards with currency accounts

Wirex never stops enhancing your fund management facilities. Now, new Wirex virtual cards are issued together with the associated currency account. As they share the same balance, you can now top up your Wirex account using the traditional bank account methods like bank transfer. At the moment, the associated currency account can only be created with the GBP virtual card and not available for other currencies yet. Also, new virtual cards come with the stunning limits: maximum balance of 7,500 GBP, 8,000 EUR, and 10,000 USD with the unlimited online spend and load amounts. See more about card limits here.

To make online purchases more secure, new Wirex virtual cards are empowered with the Verified by Visa (VBV) protection. Find more details on how it works for Wirex cards here.

Note: you can order a card only after your Wirex account has been successfully verified.

We continuously extend the list of the countries where we provide our services. Please find out if Wirex virtual cards are available for ordering in your region.

Note: Wirex virtual cards are intended for the internet payments only.

You can have up to three virtual cards simultaneously: one card in each of the available currencies (GBP, EUR, USD). Each virtual card will be activated as soon as it is issued. No additional activation is required.

Ordering cards and opening currency accounts is free, however you will be charged a monthly fee for the account maintenance by the issuer. For more information, see Wirex fees

While the currency account lifetime will not expire unless it is closed, the virtual card is valid for three years. Afterwards, it is automatically reissued. You can also reissue a card if you suspect its details have been compromised. See Card blocking and unblocking for more information.

An account may be opened only twice in the same currency. This limit is set to prevent the chaotic account management. Thus, before closing your currency account, please give it your careful consideration.
