International transactions are blocked on Niyo Global Debit card

Hi, I recently created an account on Niyo global. In the debit card section it shows a warning stating “International transactions are blocked”, and we need global credit card for international transaction. What should I do ?
Will credit card be fine or can that also get blocked ?
Also, why is international transactions blocked on debit card ?

Hi ,
My niyo Equitas debit card worked fine in India , debit and Ecomm transactions. However it is not working internationally. I was not able to make the declaration on the app, though I had made two debit card transactions(POS), it kept asking me to make one before I’ll be able to declare my travel declaration.

Please help me out, the card shows ‘active ‘ for all services on the app .
