I was notifying my bank today that I will be traveling in South Africa and was told was told that you can't actually register my card do to restrictions from OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control). Africa is on the list as being high risk, etc for fraud.
Has anyone that has recently traveled there had any problems with their cards being declined, etc. The bank said their may not be a problem but "could be". I hate the thought that I could have problems and don't like the idea of carrying a lot of cash.
Any input would be appreciated.
