As first-hand experience from someone who lives in that city... In theory, yes, definitely. This is standard. In practice, a lot of taxi drivers will try to find an excuse so they don't have to accept payment by card (like "Oh, but you should have asked before, I don't have that machine on me").

I have a similar issue with my Dutch credit card, while I live in Belgium, so Belgian address, with a CC with a Dutch number (I do work ...
