Q: Why can’t our Credit Union have its own VISA debit card? Can you please implement VISA Debit Chip Cards for your Members?
A: CBTT is not allowing non-banking institutions the permissions to issue their own card. CBTT has also ruled that all cards must be upgraded to the chip card before the end of 2021 so we are subject to JMMB’s schedule for doing so.
Q: When are you resuming application for the Linx/Visa Debit Card?
A: We are currently working with JMMB Bank to deal with the technical challenges arising from the VISA Debit Card software upgrade. This solution is imminent, and we expect to allow applications for the cards shortly thereafter.
