UPTION multi-currency card, offered by UPT – a Turkish money transfer service – is a game-changer for individuals seeking to spend money domestically and abroad. I wish I had discovered it sooner!
UPT’s expansive partner network spans numerous countries, making it incredibly easy to send money from UPTION to anyone in almost any country, all with just a few taps on your phone. However, what stands out to me most is the UPTION Card, a multi-currency Mastercard that enables spending in Turkish Lira (TL), US Dollars (USD), or Euros (EUR) without needing to convert currencies. This way, you can save money by avoiding unnecessary conversion fees and losses on fluctuating exchange rates.
To open an account, you must be a legal Turkish resident, i.e., a citizen or a foreigner with an Ikamet (resident card).

After you’ve registered in the application, you’ll need to take a photo of your ID and face to verify your identity. UPTION will then send a courier with a contract to your specified address. Once you’ve signed the contract, your account is fully activated. A few days later, the courier will deliver your new UPTION multi-currency card.
