Prohibited regions

Wirex is a global financial services provider that offers a range of cryptocurrency-related products and services to customers all over the world. However, there are some regions where our services are prohibited, and access to our website and mobile application is restricted. 

The reason for this is due to regulations and financial sanctions that are imposed by governing bodies, such as the U.S. Treasury and the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). These sanctions are designed to prevent transactions from certain high-risk regions and individuals that may be involved in criminal activity, terrorism, or other illegal activities. 

These sanction programs are put in place to protect the financial system from abuse and to promote national security interests. They are an essential tool for governments to combat money laundering, terrorist financing, and other illicit activities that threaten global stability. 

As a responsible financial services provider, Wirex is committed to complying with all applicable laws and regulations, including those related to sanctions and embargoes. This means that we must restrict access to our services in regions where they are prohibited to ensure that we do not inadvertently facilitate illegal activities or violate any laws. 

Customers attempting to access Wirex services from a prohibited region will be prevented from doing so, and their access will only be restored once they log in from a non-prohibited region and, if necessary, verify their identity. 

It is important to note that violating sanctions or attempting to access Wirex’s services from a prohibited region is a serious offense and may result in legal action or account closure. It is the responsibility of our customers to ensure that they comply with all applicable laws and regulations, and to use our services in a responsible and ethical manner. 

If you have any questions or concerns about the restrictions on access to Wirex’s services in certain regions, please contact our customer support team for assistance. We are committed to helping our customers navigate the complex regulatory landscape, and ensuring that our services are available to as many people as possible while complying with all applicable laws and regulations.
