Major lender Vietcombank on Thursday resumed the money transfer service to foreign cardholders via its ATMs, after a one-week hiatus to upgrade the system.
The bank said in a statement on its website that it had to suspend the service to upgrade its ATM system “to meet related requirements.”
“Now we have finished upgrading the system and is ready to provide the service again,” it said.
Earlier it said the suspension was in accordance with a central bank’s order.
During that time, foreigners could still use their cards to withdraw money received from a transfer via a bank office or the Internet, a customer service employee at the bank said on the phone.
