Outside the UK - UK card overseas

Top ten queries


Using a UK issued card overseas

You will continue to be able to use cards overseas. UK chip and PIN cards that carry the international card scheme logos will be accepted by overseas retailers and cash machines just as before. Where the country you are visiting has already upgraded to chip and PIN you will be asked to enter your PIN in the same way as you will in the UK. Where the country in question has not upgraded you will be asked to provide your signature instead.
