There are inherent risks to using your card overseas such as card theft and skimming, to protect your account security, we will temporarily suspend your account if you are not contactable and your account will remain blocked until we have contacted you. To minimise any inconvenience, it is important that you ensure we have your correct mobile number that you will be using whilst overseas. You can update your mobile number by logging onto Citibank Online, click Services > My Profile > Update Contact Details > Update Phone Numbers.
