The new cards will work at ATMs of the issuing bank. However, temporary issues may exist when trying to use a chip card at another bank’s ATM.

Fees will be imposed for replacing the card and using it other ATMs. However, certain banks may announce promotions to give out the new cards free-of-charge.
