My bank told me it is up to the individual merchants.


I can't see that being the case unless there is a different fee for the debit card.
I can only say that in Oz, Thailand , Philippines I've never had any trouble.
(but I don't buy much with my cards, I prefer to grab cash from an ATM and shop with that.)

WW have their own card (I think Master Card).
Ring Visa and tell them.

I can honestly say I have used my Debit cads all over Australia from Adelaide to Atherton with no problem.

I'm not sure why woolies does that considering how large the corporation is. Visa CC's work no problem but not debit. The manager of the store told me they don't accept debit. This goes for most of woolies companies like BWS etc. Works everywhere else in the world I've tried but there.

Sorry to get off topic, it's just a bit of a curiosity. I use my visa debit as a backup when overseas.

>>> This goes for most of woolies companies like BWS etc.

I think maybe you have a not so smart manager.
I've used both my ANZ and NBA debit card and got cash out at BWS on Brisbane Rd Labrador (closed last month)

I just can't see them not allowing it. Dick Smith, Tandy, BWS, petrol stations.
Big loss to WW.

I would ring Visa or Woolies head office mate, just for the satisfaction of sorting it out.

It would be interesting to know if foreigners can open a bank account in Cambodia? Maybe in association with your business visa?


Canadia Bank will let you open a USD account if you have a six month or one year business visa.

John Bohn, another member of this forum, opened an account with MayBank. Maybe he can tell you what the requirements are for that bank.

i opened an uUS dolllar account about 6 weeks ago at Maybank, Sihanoukville. Copied my passport/visa. Had t furnish a rental/lease agreement. (Tony at Charlie Harpers, where I am staying, furnished the appropriate document for me. Maybank accepted this with no problem at ll.. Have an ATM card, which they made as I waited. Nice people, good service. Not sure how requirements go but I had obtained a business visa god for one year. with the lease paper from Carlie Harpers, NO probem ANZ would not givve me an account because I do not own a business or am employed in cambodia.
