Credit Card Application Tips

To help you through the Visa application process, here are some quick tips before you start.

  • You must be a Canadian resident and be at least 19 years old
  • Allow between 10 to 30 minutes to complete your application
  • You can go back between application pages before you submit to double check your response
  • A Visa advisor will follow up within one business day of receiving your application

You may want to have this information on hand before you begin:

  • Personal information (name, birth date, contact information, social insurance number, ID number, etc.)
  • Gross income (before taxes)
  • Employment situation and information about your employer
  • Your monthly housing costs or rent
  • Monthly housing costs (rent or mortgage payments) and places of residence
  • Financial information* about you (bank accounts, other credit cards, property, savings and investments) and your spouse or parent, for a joint application

Your pet’s name and favourite colour. Just kidding. The fact that Woofy likes green is really none of our business.
