More Info

Card Usage Limits:

The default daily limits set on your NETS Transactions, ATM Withdrawals and Debit Card Spend Transactions are set at S$5000, S$3000 and S$2000 respectively.

To find out the current daily NETS/withdrawal/spend limits on your debit card and to revise these limits, you may do so via iBanking, under 'Cards > Change Debit Card Limit'.

Overseas Use of Magnetic Stripe on your DBS/POSB Card:

If you have allowed the overseas use of magnetic stripe on your DBS/POSB Card(s), it is recommended that you set the magnetic stripe on your card(s) to disallow overseas use when you are in Singapore. With the magnetic stripe disabled for overseas use, the risk of unauthorised transactions being effected on the card will be reduced.

You may disallow overseas use of the magnetic stripe on your card(s) by sending the following SMS to 77767: Disable <space> overseas <space> card’s last 4 digits. (For example: Disable overseas 1234, where 1234 is the last 4 digits of your card number). You may also disallow the magnetic stripe on your card(s) via iBanking/digibank or any DBS/POSB ATM in Singapore.
