      Paying for visa, no credit card

      Is there a way around this?

      My visa debit limit is 5000 the cost of my visa is 5800 approx (1 secondary applicant and 4 children) my daily limit is 7000

      Can I pay in 2 seperate transactions?
      Or is their a pre paid credit card with a higher limit I can load with the funds to pay this?

      TIA

      We paid by bank transfer but that was to our agent, are you paying direct? Do they not accept transfer? Could you contact your bank explain the situation and extend your debit limit as a one off?

      Doing it directly ourselves. Unfortunately I don't think bank transfer is accepted. I have a visa card and the limit cannot exceed 5k as per visa guidelines. Like I can spend 7k a day just not in one single transaction. It's a major pain. I'm currently trying to find a prepaid Mastercard to use. But there are so many out there I'm afraid of getting duped

      Can't you ask the bank to increase the limit only for this transaction? Same thing happened to me and what I did was checked with the bank and deposited the balance to my credit card account and did the transaction. It went through

      I don't hold a credit card and am reluctant to get one. My visa debit has done me just fine for years and years. It's this single payment that I need one for. I have gotten sorted with a prepaid mastercard. I will load the money onto that and then pay that way
