How is the chip and PIN card different from other cards?

A chip and PIN card has an embedded microchip that stores information in a secure, encrypted format. The microchip makes it more difficult for unauthorised users to copy or access the information on the card.

The chip in the card requires you to enter your Personal Identification Number (PIN) when you make a debit card transaction at stores using chip and PIN technology, and no signature is required.

This is to ensure that your chip and PIN card can't be used by unauthorised users to make purchases if it is lost or stolen.
Quick tips:

• Do not let anyone else know or use your PIN
• Never write it down
• Use your hand or body to shield the ATM keypad when you enter your PIN
• When a transaction is complete, put your card back in your wallet and take your transaction record

The general daily transaction limit for purchases and for ATM withdrawals is AED 15,000.
