Hi,  I have to sign a credit card authorisation form to make a payment (for a passport), since I have a bankwest DEBIT card (Mastercard) I asked the embassy whether they will accept that, they told me to put this question to you: is a Debit card 'functionally' equal to a Credit card?

Hi @RolfKoens, a Debit Mastercard is essentially the same as a normal credit card, the only difference is that it uses your money, not the banks. This should be fine to use.
