App update isn't needed to support Apple Pay. App has no role in this.

You add the card, it sends an sms to verify that you want to enable it and that's it.
The app updates could be for adding the card via the bank apps. For example, with Discovery Bank, you can load your card via the Wallet app or the Discovery Bank app and it’ll link to the Wallet app.

The only cards I added via app were traveling cards like Suica and Octopus, as I had to convert physical card to digital. None of the bank apps for my bank support that, credit card gets added via Wallet directly.

You are 100% correct. You can add your card through the banking APP if supported by the Bank. The Nedbank T&C confirms this. The interesting thing about the updates to the Bank APP's over the last week is that the version history and release notes did not update and shows information for previous releases. So it might (hopefully) contain references to Apple Pay, and why it's not updated.

The Discovery Bank app got an update without a change to the version number. Same build number.

Same for Nedbank. On a side note, when I opened my Nedbank Money App this morning and viewed my Cards, I got a quick flash on my AMEX of the “Add Card to Wallet” with the Wallet Logo. It happened so quickly and could not take a screenshot. Tried to recreate by slowing down my network without success.

Did you manage to add your card to Wallet?

Do a screen recording, then go and view the video frames after saving it

The Nedbank Money App just got an update. Apple Pay splash screen now appears. Cannot load card due to region error.

Have you tried changing your region to an officially supported region?
