Your Northwest Federal debit card can be used to get foreign currency at ATMs overseas, and is accepted at merchants worldwide without a foreign transaction fee. When traveling, follow these tips:

  • Add an international travel memo using the CardNav app.
  • To use your debit card at overseas locations requiring a 6 digit PIN, add 2 leading zeros to your current 4 digit PIN.
