Your Forex Card will be activated with the loaded currencies within 24 hours of the bank getting clear funds from your end. Once active, the card can be used at any international location.
The Forex Card works just like a Credit/Debit Card for purchase transactions at merchant establishments that have an electronic terminal. The only difference is that the transaction amount is directly debited from your Forex Card balance.
The card can be used to withdraw cash at all Visa ATMs worldwide. Irrespective of the currency in the card, the cash dispensed will be of the said currency of the country. Only ensure that you remember the PIN given to you with the card welcome kit. The same is unique for every card and can be changed only through travel web log-in. Following are the steps for using a Forex Chip Card during a POS transaction:
The cashier inserts the chip card in the POS terminal
The chip card must remain in the terminal till the transaction is completed
If the POS terminal does not have chip facility, the card can be used for normal magnetic stripe swipe on the POS terminal.
