Below is a copy of an email from Entropay.


Critical Information About Your Entropay Account

Hello,

We're sorry to let you know that due to new restrictions imposed on card issuers, we can no longer provide virtual Visa cards to people living outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) and to people living in Norway.

Here is how this change will affect you:
1. From today, 13 August 2018, if you live outside of the EEA or in Norway you will no longer be able to top up Entropay cards from debit or credit cards.
2, After 31 October, if you live outside of the EEA or in Norway all of your Entropay cards will be cancelled and permanently deleted. All money remaining on your Entropay cards will be deposited into your Entropay wallet.
3. You can withdraw your money from your wallet to your bank account or to an existing debit or credit card. There is no deadline to withdraw your money; although your Entropay cards will be deleted, your Entropay wallet will remain active after 31 October.

If your Entropay cards are currently associated with any recurring payments (for example, with a streaming service) you should replace these as soon as possible to avoid service disruption.
Although this development is outside of our control, we do apologise for what we understand will be both a frustration and inconvenience for our users.

Your account is not affected if:
Your address in your Entropay account settings is in a country in the European Economic Area (excluding Norway):
Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom.

Yes thank you for this information tony mon7ana, i think that this is not good information for people that use this service entropay, because now they need to look and find other method to withdraw money

I expect to see a lot more providers been hit by that kind of issues, when governments and established banks will tighten the rope for newer methods of money transfer, including cryptos. All to our savety of cause. Cool

This is awful news for online gamers who have been primarily relying on the Entropay Virtual Visa debit card service. I am totally shocked and disgusted. Entropay will become practically useless after Wednesday, October 31, 2018.

Are there no other options available to you? The usual suspects Skrill and Netteller? I remember that you made a different post a few month ago, where they already stated they would close for users outside europe.

Neteller and Skrill stopped offering their services to residents in most non-EU countries including those in Japan a couple of years ago. And ecoPayz, Entropay, and other European companies are likely to follow suit soon, according to several sources.
It is beyond my control. I am just trying not to worry too much.

That sucks. If the usuall payment options are not available, there is only bitcoin left as an option. But while there are some rooms accepting it as a way to deposit and withdraw, these are none of the bigger ones

Because the EU - even with all the backward looking nature of politics which going on within' it's borders - are really tough with financial regulations making sure that 'one bad seed could not make the whole fruit rot away' so they are really closing down on loopholes at financial institutions which offer worldwide services so no money laundering could go on unnoticed and some of these politics have some unfortunate consequences like these market closings.

I was fortunate enough to be able to transfer nearly 90% of my money out of Entropay by yesterday, but now I got a pathetically limited amount of working capital on various online gaming sites.
If I had not transferred my funds from online bookmakers, poker rooms, casinos, etc., to my Entropay account by the end of Monday, August 13, 2018, I would have been literally stuck in a freaking hellhole until certain arrangements are made.
