Tourist Card to be issued by Bank Melli

New debit cards to be issued to tourists in Iran

TEHRAN, April 15, 2015

Bank Melli, Iran’s first national bank, plans to issue a debit card exclusively for foreign tourists visiting the country.

Issued under the title ‘Tourist Card’, visitors can apply for the charge card at the Bank Melli branch of Imam Khomeini International Airport, said a report in Tehran Times.

With all charges converted and billed in the local currency, the card limit will be set at $5,000 or €5,000.

The tourist card will be valid for the length of stay of the visitors and any remaining money in the card will be reimbursed, the report said.

The card can be used at the issuing bank’s ATM’s across the country as well at points of sale (POS) and online shopping.

The bank plans to issue the cards in more than four Iranian cities, which are yet to be determined, the report said.
