The Saudi central bank (SAMA) issued an updated regulation in July 2012 applying additional regulations to pre-paid cards. The rules require that local banks or card operators, such as Visa, MasterCard and American Express, provide pre-paid services. Currently, the only available pre-paid cards in the Saudi market are open loop pre-paid cards, whilst closed loop cards have not yet been fully adapted and widely marketed by issuing banks or other providers.
