The digital wallet provider Skrill will stop providing its services in Lebanon as soon as next week.
Reported official email communication from Skrill has indicated that the virtual wallet service will permanently close Lebanon-based accounts on Tuesday, April 20th.
Nonetheless, even after that date, limited transactions and withdrawals will remain possible for these accounts, with the primary difference being that account holders in Lebanon will not be able to add funds to their Skrill accounts from their bank accounts.
Similarly, Lebanon-issued debit and credit cards will no longer be accepted by the platform as a valid method to add funds after April 20th.
In light of this decision, the company has advised all Lebanese users to withdraw any funds they have available in their Skrill accounts and to contact customer support for further information.
It’s worth noting that as of the time of writing, Lebanon is not on Skrill’s list of non-serviced countries.
