In the U.S. being without a credit history may be equivalent to having a poor credit designation. If a provider runs a scan on a consumer’s name and social security number in one of the three credit bureaus, the returned “no information” request is often treated as a negative score. It is very important to understand the role of credit in the U.S. financial system. Obtaining a bank account and credit cards will help establish your local credit history.
With Travel Guard®, your transition to the U.S. can be easier.
Travel Guard® relocation services will help you overcome the hurdles in the U.S. We have partnered with major banking institutions to provide qualified members access to:

Top Expat Questions About Banking For Foreigners
Opening a bank account will help you to create an identity and start building your U.S. credit history. It will also allow you certain conveniences such as online banking and bill pay.
Obtaining a U.S. based credit card is one of the easiest ways to start building a U.S. credit history. It also frees you up from having to carry large amounts of currency and needed funds in the case of an emergency.
A secured credit card requires an individual to post a security deposit and any applicable fees. Credit limits are typically lower. Unsecured credit cards do not require a security deposit and are based on U.S. credit history. Through our partnerships with major banking institutions, we are able to assist you in obtaining unsecured credit cards.
