Credit Card PIN is needed in Australia

By

Hi Travel Buddies,

You may have heard that if you make any credit card purchases in Australia, you will need to provide your credit card PIN (Personal Identification Number) instead of signatures with effect from 1 August 2014.

Please note that this applies to not only credit cards issued in Australia, but also credit cards issued overseas.  We were asked several times over the counter when we try to make purchases using our credit cards issued in Singapore.

You may get away in some retail shops but we strongly advise foreigners to obtain their PIN in their home country to minimise any inconveniences.
