      Hi Natividad,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Please have a look for the minimum income requirement at the bottom of each card’s review page. This will let you know whether you’re eligible to apply for the card. It doesn’t matter whether you’re employed, on a pension or receiving your income from assets like property, if you meet the income requirement (in addition to the other minimum eligibility requirements) then you can apply for a card. For your other question, if you are applying online, there’s an option that you can select if you’re applying without a Driver’s licence.

      I hope this helps.

      Thanks,

      Sally

    Hi, my name is Moses, I am a customer with BankSA. I am on a student visa, and was wondering what my chances of getting a loan with you are, and how much? Also, I would like to know what the requirements would be, if i should qualify.

    regards
    Moses.

      JacobJune 30, 2013Staff

      Hi Moses. Thanks for writing into us with your question. If you’re on a visa, you may need to speak to the lender directly. The products listed on our site are for permanent Australian residents, and although people on long stay and business visa can also apply for some of the products listed on our site, it’s something that will need to be done in person. You can find more information about credit cards for temporary residents on this page. I hope this helps. Jacob.

    My pensioner income is $18,000pa plus casual extra approximately $3000pa.I would like to apply for a C/Card balance transfer of $4900. Westpac card to your SA Vertigo. Would this business be conducted through St George Bank branches? Awaiting your response,Regards,

      MarcMarch 12, 2013Staff

      Hello Brian,
      thanks for the question.

      Application and balance transfers to the BankSA Vertigo can be carried out over the phone, internet or at a branch. If you wish to apply at a branch in a state where there are no BankSA branches, then this would need to be carried out at a St George branch, and in this case would mean you’d receive a St George Vertigo credit card.

      I hope this helps,
      Marc.
