how to apply, tariffs and conditions

Since March 10, 2022, Visa and MasterCard have been suspended in the Russian Federation. Therefore, many domestic banks are going to issue payment instruments with UnionPay. Much depends on the Chinese side, on how quickly they connect Russian financial institutions to their system.

However, it should be said that there are about a dozen banks that can already issue such payment instruments. Among them is MTS.
Therefore, below we will analyze how to issue a Union Pay card in this bank.

Why UnionPay cards are needed

There are no serious problems for the domestic market. Because all operations are carried out by NSPK, a domestic operator, and the MIR system also works. The only thing that cannot be done is to pay for a product or service with smartphones, smart watches and other advanced gadgets. Because the operation was carried out using Apple/Google/Samsung Pay, and these systems stopped cooperating with Russian payment instruments.

But outside of Russia, if we exclude a few countries, the cards do not work. The only exception is the Chinese UnionPay system. China is still acting as an observer and does not support sanctions. Let’s hope that the eastern neighbor will remain neutral.
