When you’re abroad, you may access your account online from many countries around the world. That said, there are a few restrictions to keep in mind. We don’t allow account activity—direct or indirect—with or from countries sanctioned by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). This means that you may not be able to access your account from certain areas outside the United States.
As a US company, we and our subsidiaries must comply with US law, including trade sanctions administered and enforced by OFAC.
OFAC prohibits or restricts transactions with certain countries, organizations, and individuals. They don’t keep a specific list of sanctioned countries because OFAC sanctions vary in scope. Some sanctions are broad-based and geographically oriented, while others are “targeted” and focus on specific individuals and entities.
For more information about OFAC and sanctioned countries, please visit the OFAC website.
