Can I use my Visa Debit chip card overseas?

‘Chip’ technology is fast becoming the global standard for card security. In some countries ‘chip’ cards are only accepted with the addition of a PIN instead of a signature. For this reason it is recommended that all Suncorp Bank customers with a ‘chip’ Visa Debit card travelling overseas have a PIN for their card.

The number of merchants able to facilitate transactions using the embedded chip information is increasing rapidly, particularly overseas, so the only change you may notice is how to make a payment with a chip card.
