JCB International has partnered with Saudi Payments, Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority subsidiary and mada, national payment network operator.

This will allow local acquiring banks to accept JCB cards through their network of POS and ATMs deployed throughout Saudi Arabia.

JCB will also open an office in Riyadh to develop and enhance its presence in the Saudi Arabian market, thus expressing its commitment and confidence.

Saudi Arabia is the most significant market for JCB to expand the issuance of JCB cards in the Islamic region. Saudi Arabia is one of the most important travel destinations for our cardholders. With the Kingdom's enhanced Vision 2030 strategy and the ever-increasing close ties between Saudi Arabia and Japan, I am delighted that we have entered into this partnership with Saudi Payments for the acceptance of JCB cards. Over the coming months, we will be announcing partnerships with local banks to expand our acceptance infrastructure in Saudi Arabia, to cater for both the business and touristic needs of our cardholders
