Your Citibank Credit Card now comes with contactless technology, for more convenient transactions. Contactless transactions are payment transactions that don't require physical contact between your credit card and the merchant's terminal, thus allowing you to make payments faster and easier as well as reducing the need for you to carry cash.

You can use your Citibank Contactless Card anywhere you see the MasterCard contactless symbol for all transactions up to AED 300*. So wave goodbye to cash and say hello to fast, easy and safe payments!


How do I make a contactless transaction?

1. Look for this symbol on the merchant's terminal.

2. Hold your Citibank credit card in front of the contactless reader. The terminal will indicate that the transaction has been processed successful.

3. Collect your items and go. If you need a receipt, just ask for it.
