Stonegate Bank issues first credit card for use in Cuba

Jun 15, 2016 by Dorie Cox

Stonegate Bank announced on June 14 the issuance of MasterCard credit cards for use in Cuba. The Pompano Beach, Florida based bank will be the first bank in the United States to take this important step and is offering a limited commemorative edition credit card.

“This has been a work in process over the last nine months,” said Dave Seleski, President and CEO. “Hopefully, more U.S. banks will allow their customers to use their cards in Cuba, thus helping to alleviate the burden on travelers to the island. In addition to personal credit cards we will also be issuing corporate, purchasing, payroll and prepaid cards within the next 30 days.”

The artwork for this card was produced by celebrated Cuban artist Michel Mirabal. Mr. Mirabal’s artwork, more than any other Cuban artist, symbolizes the historical shift in relations between the two countries. Only 1,000 of these cards will be produced.
