What does it take to get a Mastercard in Nigeria?
Basically, getting a Mastercard in Nigeria requires basic things you would need in opening an account as every card sort of has a special bank account attached to it.

So here are what you will need:
- Funds in USD, Naira or other currency it is based in. At least $150
- Personal id such as Driver's license, National Id or Int'l passport
- Proof of residence such as phone or power bill

Using your Mastercard
One you get a Mastercard debit or credit card from your bank, you can use it anywhere Mastercard is accepted such as the internet, POS, ATMs and so on to pay for hotel fees, travelling tickets, online services or making withdrawals. You should keep your card details secret by especially keeping the card away from unsafe hands.

Personalized and Non Personalized Mastercard cards
Nigerian banks offer two kinds of Mastercard cards and they could be personalized or not. The personalized one takes some days to set up after application and comes with your name embossed on it. The non-personalized on doesn't come with your name but it tied to a user number that is then linked to the name you used in making the application for a card.

Conclusion
So if you want to get a Mastercard for yourself, just walk up to your bank and file an application. It takes about 24 hrs to get an activated card working for your.
