    UK expat credit card 17th Jul 17 at 3:06 PM
    Hi

    I currently live in Budapest and was hoping to obtain a new UK credit card due to poor market here. Does anyone have any experience of getting a UK credit card whilst living outside UK? A main condition of most cards I see is that you must be a UK resident

    Thanks

    No. You'll need to apply locally.

    You may, or may not, hold a UK bank account. If you have a UK bank account check with them if they offer ExPat accounts and if you would be eligible for whatever they offer. Initially look on line.

    If you dont have a UK Bank account then it is unlikely you would get one now due to your Hungarian residency.
