Enhanced Security Measures for Overseas ATM Transaction Services
In order to enhance our security measures and comply with the requirements of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority for using Overseas ATM Services, effective from 1 March 2013, the overseas ATM cash withdrawal function of the magnetic stripe card or chip card will be pre-set as deactivated.
If you wish to withdraw cash (including cash advance) via ATMs outside of Hong Kong, you may activate the overseas ATM transaction function on your credit/ATM card(s), and set a daily withdrawal limit and an activation period, via the following means in advance:
You may still withdraw cash from some JETCO ATMs located in mainland China and Macau without activating the overseas ATM transaction function. However, you are still strongly recommended to activate the function on your credit/ATM card(s) before leaving Hong Kong to ensure you can use ATM services abroad. You can change or cancel the limit you have set upon returning to Hong Kong by following the above steps; the changes will take effect immediately.
