RE:Visa cards.Had an appointment with the manager of Udon Bangkok Bank yesterday, during our discussion he noticed my Visa debit card and promptly informed me as far as BB are concerned Visa is finished, no more cards with the Visa logo will be issued by them. Those currently held by customers will be honoured until there expiry date but will not be replaced, only by cards issued by the Chinese owned Union Pay. This also goes if you lose your Visa card you will get the chinese one . So hang on to the one you've got.It's ireplaceable.
On an associated note, users of the 1333 phone service are not able to check balance on line as the Visa card number is not recognised .My experience anyway, forgot to ask him about it .
This is still on their website.

I am not arguing that you were denied but I reckon there's a distinct lack of clarity from BB on what is still available. By the same token, there's a whole lot of websites that aren't kept current in LOS. I have the Be1st VISA debit and I get the prompts at the ATM that it needs to be replaced. My home branch is in Pattaya so it is on my to-do list when I pop down next month.

I can virtually guarantee that you will not get a Visa debt card if you replace your current one.

FWIW by BB ATM card is so old it is just an ATM card and nothing else and it doesn't expire.

We are returning to Udon early November for 6 months When we left in May we were issued a Union Pay Card and only a few places accepted.
Has the situation got better eg Will Tesco now accept ?

2 weeks ago had my new bkk bank debit card. Did not realise it was not visa but union pay . A few days ago i tried to use it at shop , not accepted . Tried to book a flight with air asia , no . Tried to use it with lazada . no.
This morning tried to register it with paypal , not supported . Complete waste of chinese junk Read on their website it only works at atms in asia but not old ones which do not accept the chip .
Just phoned Bangkok bank and the girl told me because of customers closing their bank accounts they will be issuing a new card on nov 2 with master card and if i go in with my passport they will change for me . So good news as i was going to close my account (after i opened a new one ) as i use paypal a lot for 14 years and did not want to lose it.
The mind boggles why they would do this , they must have known union pay was not supported by many shops and websites ? Must be a bit of chinese cash changing hands methinks

Ive known about this for a while , luckily mine is still valid .
I was thinking of changing banks after 14 years with BKK myself , so pleased to know they have finally woke up to smell the coffee . Why they changed is beyond any reason . What idiot , at what level decides to drop visa in the first place , and i bet they still have their job . Accountability , whats that !

And I think you'll also find that the Sophonpanich family are heavily into the annual tomb-sweeping Qingming malarkey 'back home' as well.

I dropped by the Phosri Road branch of Bangkok Bank yesterday to inquire about the expiration date of my Visa debit card. Jenny, the young lady that handles my Foreign Currency Deposit accounts, told me that those cards will expire in 2019 regardless of the expiration date printed on the card. However, no one knows in what month they will discontinue them. I was told to continue using my card and when they get some official word I will get an email. As per usual, headquarters makes such announcements and the details seldom trickle down to the employees in the branches. Then they all pick up bits and pieces through the grapevine, but nobody is ever on the same page. Unbelievable!

Today I visited Bangkok Bank , I explained to the young lady I wish to change
my Visa debit card for a Master Card. She was puzzled why , I explained I had
read on the internet my card will be closed next year and also some times
at the ATM my card is rejected and I am told to contact my bank ,
So as the Visa Card is now being replaced I may as well up grade to a Master Card.
I have the card with a six digit pin and no charge for the change over of cards.
I tested the new card at the ATM all good , expires 2023 so I hope no more problems
with using at the ATM . Also I hope I can use in London .
