Where on a Maestro Card Is the Issue Number?

The issue numbers on Maestro Cards are no longer required in the transaction as per the 13th May 2011. Merchants are not required to ask for this information for Maestro transactions and any other validation checks on the issue number.

Not all maestro cards have an issue number. Count the number of digits in the main number across the centre of the card. If it is 16 digits there is no issue number. If it is longer there is. If it has an issue number it will be on the front of the card near the expiry date. It will say 'issue' followed by a one or two digit number. If there is no issue number you will need to provide the 'valid from' date in its place.
Maestro is a multi-national debit card service that is owned by MasterCard. Not all maestro cards have an issue number. If it has one, it will be near the expiry date. It will simply be written the word 'issue' then followed by a one or two digit number.
An issue number in a Maestro card is used to differentiate between the new card and old card. If you lose your card the card number cannot be changed in the event of the card being lost or stolen, but the issue number can be incremented.
