US Citizen living overseas cannot get a new credit card

US Citizen living overseas cannot get a new credit card

  1. Anonymous

    HI Lucky,

    I am currently working and living overseas and I only have post office box in the US. I applied for a Southwest credit card and was denied. I called and was told that they could not confirm my residence based on the new post – 911 rules.

    Is there a legal way to overcome this problem?

    Hi Chris – yes, there are legal ways to overcome your issue, though maybe not for your southwest card. Are you a government employee or military member? If you are eligible for an APO/FPO address, that will usually work, even one that is shared. I think rules vary (in general) by credit card company. I know Citibank issues cards to US citizens living abroad – though they may need some sort of financial verification.
