Default Contact them

You can try this;

Send an email to assessmentservices@nbme.org and describe the problem to them in details and there is a big chance that they will add the 2021 option for you.

If you contact them, let us know what they told you ...

I do not think you can use a DEBIT card for any internet purchases (it should say on the back of the card) you need a true credit card where you are billed for your usage after you have used it. Not the card that can be used in an ATM!

Any Debit Card that has MasterCard or Visa logo can be used a credit card. For further details please read here ECFMG Payment by Debit Card

Am pretty sure that any debit card that has MasterCard or Visa logo in it works just like any credit card. This is not about countries, this is a standard feature provided by MasterCard and Visa.

You maybe right, although experience states otherwise. I wanted to purchase something else online, and with my State Bank of India Visa Debit card, I was unable to purchase anything online.

Ended up using my American Express instead.

That's what I was thinking too, a 10 year expiry period is a very long time!

HELLO PATEL, can u tell me if it was a SBI ATM cum debit card or the SBI visa debit card, for my card read sbi atm cum debit card but it doesn't have the visa logo, its the master card logo (not even mastercard logo its not the same i guess) i want to get a clear idea before i proceed for i cant risk if the card shows amount deducted and the NBME say they haven't received any.

Sorry my mistake its "mastero" logo on the card instead of the "master card" logo, both logo are similar with two circles cutting each other
