Credit card eligibility checker

Find out if you're eligible for an HSBC credit card

Use our eligibility checker to find out if you're likely to be accepted for one of our credit cards, before you apply.1

It's quick and easy and there's no impact on your credit score.

Why check my eligibility before applying?

Applying for a credit card can have a negative impact on your credit score if you’re declined. Our credit card eligibility checker shows you which cards you’re likely to be accepted for, and your estimated credit limit, without affecting your credit score. That’s it. Nice and simple.

What information will I need?

  • last 3 years of address history
  • income and salary information
  • any other spending commitments

New to the UK?

If you've recently moved to the UK, you may be able to use your credit history from your previous home to apply for one of our credit cards. 

1. Existing credit card customers are unable to use the eligibility checker to assess their eligibility for a second credit card.
