By joining the Skrill USA VIP program, you will get access to a 24-hour support service. Also, you will have a personal manager who can help you solve all issues and problems. Also, all VIP Skrill USA users will be able to take part in special Skrill promotions.

If you want to become Skrill VIP, you need to make transactions in merchants in the amount of 15 000 USD within 30 days. After that, within five days, your status will be upgraded from a regular user to VIP, and you will get access to all the Skrill VIP benefits for the USA.

As a non-U.S. Skrill customer, you can use your Skrill MasterCard in the USA regularly, wherever MasterCard is accepted, and you will be not forbidden to access your Skrill account either, but please note that transfers to EU gambling merchants would not be possible. Your account might get locked if you try to execute such a transfer. Other transfers, such as funding your Skrill accountant Person to Person transactions, should be possible with no restrictions.

Please be aware that any breach might lead to a lock of your account, and if you intend to spend a longer period in the US then please sign up for an Inc account. Some of our clients were not aware of this and got their account locked. We were able to get their accounts reopened faster again, but it is still taking some time, so please stick to the rule and pay attention.

We also would recommend letting Skrill support now if you plan to travel to avoid any issues with your card or your account. Just send a quick email to [email protected] so that they are aware of this.
