“Smart Chip”BOC Card — All-Rounded Card Services Enhanced security measures for extra protections and overseas transactions control

2014-06-30

 

To optimize the security level of our cards, all BOC Card (“The Card”) have been upgraded by the latest chip technology which can better protect cardholders’ personal information from information leaking or card cloning. To start with, the Overseas Transaction control function for all chip-based BOC Card has been pre-set as “deactivated”. Whenever it is needed, the cardholders may activate this function and set the Overseas Daily Withdrawal Limit and Validity Period via the following channels:

Overseas Transaction Setting Channels

1. BOC NET (Personal)

2. BOC Express

3. ATMs of Bank Of China Macau Branch and ATMs displaying logo

4. BOC Mobile Banking

5. BOC Service Hotline (853) 888 95566

Remark

  1. Overseas transaction means cash withdrawal transactions and purchases transactions made outside of Macau.
  2. Both cash withdrawal and purchase transaction will be activated / deactivated simultaneously each time the cardholder changes the setting of Overseas Transaction.
  3. When the overseas transaction function is activated, the cardholder has to set the Overseas Daily Withdrawal Limit (Maximum $20,000 per account per day) right after. If there are 3 accounts in the Card, the maximum Overseas Daily Withdrawal Limit with the Card will be $60,000.
  4. The Purchasing Limit of the Card is equivalent to the total balance in your account(s) unless it is pre-set to be either 0, 50,000, 100,000, 500,000 or 1,000,000 or unlimit.
  5. In addition, you must also set the validity period, i.e. Start Date and End Date, of the Overseas Transaction function of which the latest possible End Date will be the same as the expiry date of the Card. For example, the expiry date of the Card is 12/23, that means the latest possible End Date will be Dec 31, 2023.
