MUSCAT – In celebration of the countdown to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, Bank Muscat, the leading financial services provider in the Sultanate, has announced the launch of an exclusive limited edition Visa Prepaid Card in partnership with Visa. Customers can apply via Mobile or Internet Banking for the Visa card, which has been designed as a collector’s item and can be used for both local and global payments.

On this occasion Abdullah Tamman Al Mashaani, General Manager – Products, Bank Muscat, said: “We are delighted to launch the new Limited edition Visa Prepaid Card to celebrate the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, thanks to Visa. Bank Muscat Visa Prepaid Cards continue to lead local and regional benchmarks in providing a secure and convenient payment option for our customers. The growth of Bank Muscat’s Visa Prepaid Cards has been impressive over the years, and we continue our leadership in launching Visa payment products which fulfill the financial needs of our customers.”

It is important to note that the Visa Prepaid Card features contactless payment technology and can be managed easily through the bank’s Mobile Banking app or Internet Banking. Customers can apply for a personalised card with its unique design, load funds and top it up instantly, and also review transactions to manage their expenses. In addition, the cards can be used for secure online payments apart from PoS payments and ATM withdrawals.

Bank Muscat’s contactless Visa Prepaid cards are a popular option for customers to complete their low-value point-of-sale (POS) transactions at groceries and supermarkets with a simple tap of the POS terminal without the need to enter their personal identification number (PIN) for transactions up to RO 40. Recently, Bank Muscat launched an option for customers to apply for Visa Prepaid Cards through Internet or Mobile banking. The new process continues the bank’s customer-centric strategy of launching new payment products and services that improve financial inclusion and offer new, convenient and highly secure e-payment options. The bank has stated that it will continue to launch new digital payment services and platforms to further enhance the ease of banking and customer convenience.

It must be noted that contactless cards feature best-in-class security for PoS and online transactions. In case of any loss or misplacement of the card, it can be blocked immediately by calling the Bank Muscat Contact Centre on 24795555. For more details on the bank’s Visa Prepaid cards, please go to
