The GOG E-Travel Card Program offers a secured payment solution to cardholders and the Government. VISA and MasterCard makes it possible for cardholders to make payments worldwide.

The Card may be used for approved travel and related expenses including:

  • Transportation
  • Accommodation
  • Meals
The objective of the E-Travel Card is to ensure that officials and employees are not ‘out-of-pocket’ when travelling on official assignments. Accordingly, it is advisable that travel funds should not be accessed until immediately prior to or after the travel has commenced. A cardholder may have early access to funds on card where this is necessary to meet specific travel requirement.
