Well…I’m not sure this is the case.
I’ve hit 2/3rds of my top up limit and sensibly tried to increase my limit by submitting documentation, showing full provenance of funds, ownership etc. After several days wait the Compliance department asked me to wait until I reached my limits and then to apply again.
Seems counterintuitive to me. And also overly bureaucratic. And not really providing the frictionless functionality that Revolut was created for.
I’m now wondering whether this is a not too subtle way of Revolut imposing limits on supposedly ‘limitless’ Premium accounts Forex availability. And not strictly related to NYC. I hope I’m wrong.
