Planning to Travel?

We want your next trip to be as hassle free as possible.

At Northrim Bank we are serious about keeping you safe from debit card fraud. As part of this effort, we may block transactions from specific states, regions or countries due to fraudulent activity trends. Currently we have placed additional protections on transactions in the following states: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, DC, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia, Wisconsin; and in the following countries: Africa, Arab Emirates, Brazil, Canada, Europe, Great Britain, India, Italy, Mexico, Romania, Russia, South Korea, Spain, and Ukraine. Some transactions in these areas may be blocked or may require you to enter a PIN to complete a transaction.

To ensure uninterrupted use of your Northrim Bank Debit Card while travelling, please notify us at least one business day prior to your departure. Notifying Northrim will help ensure your debit card purchases are not blocked by our fraud monitoring systems in most cases. Without notification of travel, we may block usage of your debit card when suspicious transactions or transactions in blocked areas are identified.

To notify us of your travel plans, please do one of the following:

  • Email the following information to
    • The last eight digits of your card number*
    • The first and last name of the cardholder
    • Dates and destinations of travel
  • Contact our Customer Service Center at 562-0062 or toll-free at 800-478-2265

*Do not include your entire card number, account number, or any other personal information as the email is unencrypted.
