Loading Funds on your Visa World Currency Card

Load funds on your card every time you travel


Your World Currency Card™ is valid for five years, so you can use it every time you travel. There are four main ways to load funds onto your card:

1. Order and reload your World Currency Card Online

  1. Register for Online Forex Ordering
  2. Log in
  3. Insert your travel details, the currency type* and value. The rand value will be calculated at the current exchange rate.
  4. Pay via EFT or online using your credit card
  5. Decide whether you’d prefer to collect from a branch or have it delivered directly to your door (pre-approved locations only).

*Note: If you’re also ordering foreign notes, delivery is only available for USD, GBP and EUR.

2. Visit a Bidvest Bank branch

Simply visit any Bidvest Bank branch to load money onto your card before you depart.

Before leaving for your trip, complete a Power of Attorney form. The representative you appoint must be available in South Africa to visit a branch to reload funds on your behalf.

4. Transfer using your Bidvest Bank Account
