The Bank of Bhutan will activate its international credit card transaction on Point of Sale (PoS) and ATM from today. However transactions on e-commerce platforms will still be blocked until further notice.
On November 16, the bank notified its credit card holders announcing a temporary blockade on all transactions after it was alerted on suspicious attempts of unauthorised transactions. The bank has then taken up the issue with its partner Visa, which investigated on the matter.
“Bank of Bhutan would like to assure you that your data is safe and secure and we are fully committed to ensuring this,” the bank’s mail to its cardholders stated.
The bank also assured to rectify the issue pertaining to e-Commerce at earliest possible.
