In 2022, Russian banking payment systems have faced the blocking of Visa, Mastercard and Mir cards outside the country and the refusal of Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay services to serve Russian customers. In this regard, Russian citizens cannot pay for goods and services on foreign websites, receive a salary from a foreign employer, or make digital payments on vacation abroad.
The Russians were not confused and decided to issue bank cards in the CIS countries, Turkey, Serbia, and Thailand. At the same time, there is a need to send a bank card by courier service to Russia.
For example, a relative, acquaintance or work colleague who permanently resides abroad has issued a local bank card for himself, but you will use it. Or the card is remotely issued for you, and physical sending is carried out from abroad.
The transport blockade and suspension of the work of international courier services on the territory of Russia made direct delivery from abroad impossible. Sending a bank card from Asia, the USA, Europe, Australia, Africa to Russia has become a quest. The average user does not have the experience to identify deception, understand the competence of the carrier to get the best solution.
Is there an available option to send a bank card from Europe to Russia in 2022?
Yes, it is. The logistics team of the TSM international courier service has found alternatives for the delivery of parcels, documents and bank cards from Europe to Russia.
The actual state of affairs while sending a bank card from Europe to Russia in 2022
The transport blockade by the EU and the refusal of international postal services to work with the Russian direction significantly worsened the situation. UPS, Federal Express, TNT Express, DHL stopped shipping to Russia.
The authorities of the EU countries notified the Universal Postal Union about their refusal to issue mailings to the territory of the Russian Federation, therefore, the Russian Post stopped receiving shipments from unfriendly countries as a forced measure.
Due to the disconnection of most Russian banks from SWIFT, the possibility of paying for delivery services of an envelope with a bank card from the United States to Russia has put many at a dead end.
