Information about bank cards issued by Russian banks11 March 2022 News
A formal e-mail was received from the Turkish İş Bank in which they inform us that, ‘‘due to the military operation initiated by Russia in Ukraine, many countries are imposing sanctions on Russia and some international companies have limited their activities in the country. Within the scope of the decisions taken by the most important international card payment companies Visa and MasterCard, Visa and MasterCard-branded cards issued by Russian banks are no longer supported by their networks.’’
For this reason, we inform you that transactions made with Visa, MasterCard or American Express cards of Russian origin at the POS terminals in the Consulate General will not be approved.
