By Verdict Staff

Doha Bank has joined forces with UnionPay International for issuance of the first UnionPay card in Qatar.

The new partnership will enable issuance of UnionPay debit cards, credit cards and prepaid cards among others.

Moreover, as international payment cards, cardholders will be able to use UnionPay cards in the UnionPay acceptance network in more than 150 countries and regions.

Doha Bank previously also pioneered acceptance of UnionPay cards in Qatar across its network of ATMs and point of sale merchants.

Doha Bank retail banking head Suresh Bajpai commented: "Doha Bank now has widespread associations with the biggest international payment networks and bankcard associations, which makes us the only bank in Qatar to include the major global bankcard issuance relationships. We currently issue cards in Qatar, the UAE, Kuwait and India in respective local currencies.

"We are proud to claim the leading bank partner tag for the world’s biggest payment networks. It gives us immense pleasure to be the partner of choice for national networks of both China as well as India – which gives our cardholders access to the two fastest-growing and most populous countries on the planet."
