    Activating the Card for Overseas Expenses

    You can also deactivate the magnetic stripe for overseas use via SMS or email.

    Instalment Payment Plans Available

    With your Visa Dual Currency Credit Card, you can convert purchases into instalments. The amount that you will be required to pay for the tenure of the instalment will be determined by the bank.

    It is important to remember that the credit limit on your card will be reduced by the amount of the purchase that has been unpaid. Also, keep in mind that any transaction that is converted to instalments will not earn any cashback.
