You can activate your Card in one of the following ways:
Call 22 877 477 until 21:00 on business days and until 22:00 on Saturdays.
Log in to Alpha Web Banking and select “Card Activation” under Cards.
If the Card is activated outside the Bank’s working hours, it will be ready to use on the next business day.
Activate your Card at any of the Bank’s ATMs in Cyprus, by selecting “Card Activation”.
Make a Chip & PIN payment at any POS terminal within the European Union.
This method of activation is only available for Cards issued for purposes of renewal or damage and not for Cards:
The Card will be activated only with the 1st transaction at a POS terminal, whether it is a contactless or a chip (contact) transaction. In the first case (contactless), the system will recognise that the Card is deactivated and will request the Holder to enter his or her PIN.
Additional Cards can be activated independently of the Main Card.
