Foreign Transaction Fee

A foreign transaction fee is a fee charged by banks, credit card companies, and other financial institutions for processing international transactions made with a debit or credit card. It is usually a fixed percentage of the transaction amount. For example, if you are shopping in Japan and paying in Japanese Yen, then your purchase will be subject to a foreign transaction fee when it is processed by your bank or credit card company.
