Can I sign up in Japan yet?

Can I sign up in Japan yet? It seems Monzo is not available in Japan despite many net users stating it is. I tried creating an account - I am in Japan - but informed unavailable in Japan :frowning:

Monzo is for UK/US residents only.


ok… thanks.

I’m curious where you are reading that Monzo is available in Japan?


You may be reading that the cards work in Japan, not that you can set up an account if you live in Japan.


yes… that seems to be the situation.


Revolut is or was available for Japan residents. please check if that one helps you.

Thank you but it seems michaelw90 is correct. Yes, the cards work in Japan but I cannot set up an account in Japan. I am a resident of Japan but could not sign up. I will be returning to UK shortly so will try again in future.

You’re only eligible if you’re permanent resident of the UK, not visiting.

Revolut would otherwise be suitable as I believe they launched in Japan.

Thank you. I am a Brit currently working in Japan. Revolut seems to be an option :+1:
