You’ll be protected by Visa’s Zero Liability Policy. With Visa's Zero Liability policy*, you can get protection from fraudulent charges made with your card or account information. This means you can pay with total confidence, knowing you are protected against unauthorised use.

Plus, you now have the option to turn international purchases off at any time (for extra security) using Internet Banking or your Mobile Banking App. You can also turn off domestic purchases and ATM withdrawals – which is a good idea if you’re travelling overseas.

When using your card overseas, fees and charges may apply.

*Visa's Zero Liability policy covers Australian and New Zealand-issued cards and does not apply to ATM transactions, transactions not processed by Visa or certain commercial card transactions. Cardholders should notify their Issuer promptly of any unauthorised Visa use. Please consult your Issuer for additional details.
