Bank First Visa Credit and Visa Debit cards come with the added benefit of Visa payWave technology. For more information, see our Visa payWave page.
Where Can I Use My Card?
Your Victoria Teachers Mutual Bank or Bank First Visa Credit Cards and Visa Debit Card are accepted anywhere the Visa logo is displayed in Australia or overseas.
You can also use your Visa Credit Cards and Visa Debit Card at ATMs and EFTPOS terminals across Australia or to make purchases over the phone or via the internet.
You can also use your ATM Card at EFTPOS terminals across Australia, Commonwealth Bank ATMs, through Bank@Post (at participating Australia Post outlets) and at our branches.
Using your Visa Card Overseas
Your Visa Credit Cards and Visa Debit Card are accepted anywhere the Visa logo is displayed overseas.
Recently, Visa chip cards have been introduced in several overseas countries.
In this case, there may be the rare instance when an overseas merchant will be uncertain about how to process a transaction on a foreign Visa card.
Your Visa card will operate as usual (by pressing the CR button) in these countries. All the merchant has to do is swipe the card in the terminal and follow the prompts.
Further information can be obtained on the Visa International website.
Changing your PIN
You can now select the PIN on your Victoria Teachers Mutual Bank or Bank First card via Internet Banking or Mobile Banking App as long as you have SMS One Time Password enabled. It provides you with the convenience of selecting a PIN via a secure channel anywhere/anytime. You won’t need to know your existing PIN to change it.
If you're not yet registered for internet banking, please call 1300 654 822.
What Do I Do If My Card Is Lost Or Stolen?

Verified by Visa Service
Your Mutual Bank is now required by Visa International to automatically register your Debit/Credit Card for the Verified by Visa Service. This Service is designed to provide added protection when performing purchases online at merchants who authenticate via Verified by Visa. Not all online merchants are registered for this service so Members should exercise caution when purchasing over the Internet.
When shopping online at a merchant who uses the Verified by Visa Service, you may be prompted to enter information that is matched against the Mutual Bank’s records. The merchant is not aware of the information being asked, so you can be ensured the process is secure. Once the correct responses are entered, the Verified by Visa Service will authenticate you as the authorised card holder and complete your online transaction.
