Where can I activate my Visa Debit Card?

You can activate your debit card at ATMs worldwide, wherever you see the VISA Debit logo. Until you activate your card you will not be able to make transactions online, or with a retailer (Point of Sale) including Chip and PIN or Contactless transactions.

Activation Options

Simply use Chip and PIN to complete any one of the following transactions:

  • Change the PIN at a Bank of Ireland ATM. To find an ATM near you click here
  • Withdraw your funds at a Bank of Ireland ATM. To find an ATM near you click here
  • Withdraw your funds from any Chip and PIN ATM worldwide displaying the VISA Debit logo

Please note

You should activate your card as soon as you receive it using the 4 digit PIN you received. Your 4 digit PIN will arrive separately from your debit card.

If you have received a card to replace an expired or damaged card you can use the same PIN as your previous card.

You can change your 4 digit PIN, and more, using a Bank of Ireland ATM
