Answer: Yes, the card should function at any retailer that accepts VISA cards but in some countries (e.g. the USA), cards with microprocessor chips are not in use. Instead of entering a PIN, sign your name on the VISA receipt. It is therefore important that the card holder sign his name on the card. Some overseas retailers require a PIN to authorise purchases and, as a result, card holders could experience some problems even though all retailers who accept VISA cards should accept the Landsbankinn gift card, which is a VISA card approved by VISA Europe. Overseas, and in Iceland, card holders should merely have to run the magnetic strip through the card reader and sign their name instead of entering a PIN.
