EMV chip bank cards

Hi, Our bank is accepting only EMV chip transactions overseas for credit card and debit cards. Anybody please tell if EMV chip cards are widely accepted in Singapore ATM & retail POS. Mention places where magnetic strip transaction is only taken. Thanks

All debit and credit cards in recent years have Chips. And even ATM cards are starting to be replaced with the chip variety.

Yup, you'll be fine. Magnetic strip cards are being phased out aggressively. This is to deter ATM skimming. There was a high profile criminal case involving ATM skimming a few years ago.
