The card is the product of a collaboration between Malaysia's Touch 'N Go and Singapore's largest contactless e-purse issuer EZ-Link. 

Combi Card will be the first of its kind in Southeast Asia, hosting electronic wallets in currencies of the two countries

"EZ-Link is excited to partner with Touch 'N Go to make it possible for our people to conveniently pay for electronic road pricing in Singapore, highway tolls in Malaysia and parking as a start, and shopping and dining in the future with just one card," said EZ-Link chief executive officer Nicholas Lee, in a joint statement.

According to The Straits Times, the card will store Singapore dollars and Malaysian ringgit separately.

The card is expected to be launched by the end of this year
