Visa Debit Card

Convenient and secure card access to your money – at home and overseas
Visa Debit Card

A Visa Debit Card1 is not a credit card – it’s a debit card with no annual fee that gives you convenient access to funds in your transaction account in Australia and around the world – anywhere Visa is accepted.

You can shop securely online, at home, over the phone, or overseas – wherever Visa is accepted. Best of all, you can use your own money from your account (not credit from a credit card).

  • Withdraw cash at ATMs in Australia and around the world (just look for the Visa logo) 
  • Link up to two accounts to your Visa Debit card and enjoy instant access to your accounts by pressing ‘CHQ’ or ‘SAV’.
  • Security – Added protection with chip technology, giving you the latest card security.
  • Speed - For a simple and fast payment option, choose Visa payWave. Just wave and go. There’s no need to enter a PIN or sign for purchases under $100.
