    Is it possible to apply for a citibank debit card while overseas?

      Hi Deburr,

      Thanks for your question.

      You are able to apply for a card while overseas, but you’ll need to have a valid Australian residential address, and your card will also be sent to this address upon approval. You’ll also need access to two forms of ID – driver’s licence, Medicare card or passport, to be able to verify your identity electronically.

      I hope this has helped.

    Hi. I am thinking of going to the UK in September and I am interested in Citi’s debit card which it allows me to transfer funds to the UK account so that I can withdraw pounds in there. My question is how does that work? Do I need to set up another Citi account in the UK? If not, do I have both the pounds and AUD accounts in my account? Please advise. Thank you.

      Hi Chingwang. Thanks for your question. To take advantage of Citibank’s fee free international transfer, you may want to consider looking into the Citibank Plus Transaction Account. This account offers free money transfer to other Citibank accounts in 25 countries. You would need to open a Citibank account in the UK. The funds are converted into Pounds and are subject to the Citibank exchange rate, which can be found on their website. Keep in mind, ‘Non-Citibank and non-Partner* ATM owners may charge you a fee for use of their ATMs. *Partner ATMs include Westpac branded, St. George, Bank of Melbourne and Bank SA ATMs within Australia.’ – taken from the product terms and conditions clause 2. Jacob.

    Is it possible to have a Citibank Signature visa card that includes a debit card in the one card so that expenditure on both credit and debit goes toward a Qantas frequent flyer reward program?

    • Staff

      Hello Megan,
      thanks for the question!

      It’s not possible to link a debit card to the Citibank Signature Visa so both cards can be used to earn Qantas Frequent Flyer points. There are some transaction accounts that offer rewards points such as the Bankwest Rewards Transaction Account. This doesn’t at the moment allow the transfer of points to Qantas Frequent Flyer points, but the points can still be redeemed for other rewards.

      I hope this helps,
