I was wondering if any of my fellow Lao Wai have experience getting a credit card from a Chinese bank. Is it possible? And if so how should one go about getting one?
i'm pretty sure it's possible since i have some foreign friends who have them to use on taobao and stuff. i guess you'd just go to your bank and ask them how you can apply for one. but if it's just that you need a card to purchase something a standard-issue bank/debit/atm card will usually do in lieu of a credit card.
Hi, I got a credit card from the Industrial Bank with no problems, its a dual currency card USD/RMB, I applied with a group of people from work, the only thing to watch for is that they should use your name as it appears in your passport and not your Chinese name,,otherwise its difficult to use overseas.
I guess you have to provide a proof of regular income, otherwise you just end up with a debit card afaik.
