6. VISA Global Customer Assistance Services

Emergency Assistance for Travellers

No matter where you travel, you can call the VISA Global Customer Assistance Service number 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and a customer service representative will be available to assist me. You can call on 001 443 641 2004 for assistance. 

You can lodge a lost or stolen card report, arrange for a replacement Credit Card or emergency cash delivery with your Bank's approval and make any other Visa Card-related inquiry. 

To best assist the customer service representative, it is important that I have this information at hand:

  • name of Bank - BNF Bank p.l.c;
  • Contactless Credit Card type (e.g. VISA Gold, VISA Classic, PAVI PAMA Card);
  • country where the card was issued - Malta;
  • exact cardholder name as printed on the card;

  • home phone number;
  • circumstances of the loss or theft;
  • your identification verification information, as provided when you applied for your card (e.g date of birth, mother's maiden name or similar).

If you know the full sixteen (16)-digit credit card number, this information will help reduce the time it takes to cancel your lost or stolen Credit Card. Fees apply for use of this service. Please refer to the BNF Tariff of Charges.
