With 100,000 bonus points, you could get $400 back on your account (via Pay with Points) or 40,000 Velocity Frequent Flyer points, which is enough for a return economy flight between Sydney and Fiji (35,600 Velocity Points plus fees and taxes).

Hi Sam,

You need to be a permanent Australian resident to apply for a Citi credit card. You can compare credit cards available to temporary residents on Finder. I hope this helps.
