The long-planned exchange of Pilsen Cards has been commenced on 2 February 2015

The card exchange will be spread over several years and will be done in batches based on the cards’ serial numbers (from the lowest to the highest). It is only apply to cardholders who obtained their cards between May 2004 and May 2011. These cards do not have an expiry date printed on them and most of them have already significantly exceeded their guaranteed life.

Cardholders will gradually be called on through information channels to exchange their cards within a particular time period. Two months will be reserved for each numerical series.
