Debit Card International Access Form
At Standard Bank we take your account security very seriously. We’ve joined with other community banks in fighting against debit card fraud by offering a free service designed to safeguard your account by blocking international transactions.
Effective August 1, 2011, Standard Bank will be blocking the following international credit transactions:
- Debit MasterCard purchases made in a foreign country.
- Debit MasterCard purchases or payments made through a company that is located outside of the United States.
- Debit MasterCard purchases or payments made and the transaction is processed by a payment processor that is located outside of the United States.
If you choose “Credit” when making a purchase, you will be asked to sign. For these “Credit” purchases to be approved, you must notify Standard Bank so we can enable your Debit MasterCard to work as a credit outside of the United States.
Please note: Foreign ATM and PIN- based transactions will not be affected by this change. If you plan on always using your PIN with your Debit MasterCard while traveling internationally, then you don’t need to notify us of your travel plans.
It is always wise to carry another credit card while traveling, so you have more than one payment option available.
For your Debit MasterCard to work in other countries, please contact us using the form below with your travel and contact information so we can flag your account to allow transactions in those countries - including United States territories (like Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands), Mexico, Canada, the Bahamas - any place outside the 50 states.
