VISA/Amex delay EMV until April 2021
Shortly ago, American Express and VISA announced that they will extend the Oct. 1, 2020 deadline for EMV upgrades to April 16 and April 17, 2021, respectively. PMAA, NACS, SIGMA, NATSO and the Merchant Advisory Group requested the deadline extension in a
March 23rd letter
to Visa because the coronavirus lockdown and social distancing requirements made it impossible in many cases for EMV vendors to install new equipment and software at retail locations.
