Group managing director Datuk Khairussaleh Ramli said RHB is the first Malaysian bank to introduce the debit card and targets to issue 15,000 of the cards in the first year.
He said the launch of the debit card is part of RHB’s commitment towards making banking more convenient, fast and seamless for its customers.
“The debit card will empower our customers’ lifestyles and provide a gateway for the various financial needs without the hassle of having to open accounts in different countries,” he told reporters after the launch of RHB Multi Currency Visa Debit Card and RHB Premier Multi Currency Visa Debit Card, here today.
Both cards support US dollar, Canadian dollar, Japanese yen, British pound sterling, Australian dollar, New Zealand dollar, Swiss franc, Hong Kong dollar, Saudi riyal, South African rand, Singapore dollar and Thai baht.
Meanwhile, Malaysia Visa country manager Ng Kong Boon said customers would enjoy competitive exchange rates on 13 foreign currencies when they use the debit cards, without any conversion charge or transaction fees.
Customers can open a RHB Multi Currency account, which offers the multi currency card with a minimum initial deposit of US$1,000 or its equivalent. - Bernama
