Nordea’s Visa debit cards are an excellent choice for customers of all ages

Get a reliable and easy-to-use Visa debit card from Nordea. Debit cards are different from credit cards in that they do not have a credit facility. Nordea offers two debit card options with slightly different features. 

Both Nordea Debit and Nordea Electron cards deduct all card transactions directly from the account linked to the card. When you pay or withdraw cash with your Nordea Electron debit card, the available balance on your bank account is always checked. The corresponding pre-authorised amount will be held temporarily from the available balance for up to 10 days until the transaction is debited to your account.

You can easily change these settings in mobile bank or Netbank. In addition, the Verified by Visa service provides you with an extra layer of security when making online purchases.
