Re: credit card with L permit?

hello all,

I have currently a L permit, and a bank account (Credit suisse) with a Maestro card.
Do you know if CS can give me a Visa card with a L permit, or should I have a B?

thanks
While I can't answer this with any authority I do think you're going to have a tough time on an L permit. As the L permit is a short stay permit, holders tend to be far more of a credit risk in the eyes of the banks.

I do know for sure that while I was on an L permit I couldn't even get membership to the video rental place just up the road from me. I never bothered to apply for a credit card as it would have probably been a waste of time.

As you're EU you may have a better chance than a non EU L permit holder, but even so I wouldn't hold your breath.
