Belarus-based Belinvestbank has started accepting cards issued by JCB International at its ATMs and point-of-sale (POS) terminals in the European country.

JCB cardholders will now be able to make cash withdrawals and payments at Belinvestbank’s network of 500 ATMs and 7,300 merchants across Belarus.

JCB International Eurasia general director Takashi Suetsugu said this launch is an important part of the firm’s ongoing issuance projects for JCB and co-badged Mir-JCB Cards in Russia.

Belinvestbank chairman of the board Andrey Brishtelev said: “We are glad that Belinvestbank helps to establish comfortable conditions for staying in Belarus for JCB Cardholders who are visiting our country.

“Furthermore, we are expanding opportunities for cardholders of the Russian national payment system MIR as co-badged Mir-JCB cards will be accepted in Belarus via acquiring network of Belinvestbank.”

Also, JCB International has partnered with Vietnam-based Nam A Commercial Joint Stock Bank (Nam A Bank) to licence the issuance of its cards and acquisition of its merchants.
