Credit Cards

Credit Cards


Credit Cards are cards that allow customers to buy goods/services online, pay through POSs, and withdraw cash from ATMs inside and outside Kuwait on credit (i.e. a debt on the customer to be repaid in installments).

Tips for using Credit Cards:

  • Never write the password on the card
  • In case you wish to use the banking card while traveling, request the bank charges and commissions for the card you shall use, as there are additional fees for using the cards abroad
  • Before traveling, make sure to notify your bank with your travel destination and duration
  • When using your banking card outside the country, the bank may consider the transactions processed through that card as suspicious, and may deactivate the card to protect your account. To avoid this, you should inform the bank before you travel
  • Avoid using unfamiliar ATMs outside Kuwait, as some machines are used in card scams
  • Credit cards offer multiple benefits inside Kuwait or abroad such as airport lounge, discounts, etc. Make sure you are aware of these benefits to avail yourself of them
  • Once returning to Kuwait, it is recommended to change the PIN Code of the used card
  • Prepaid cards are convenient for online shopping. However, do not load a large amount on them
