Take your credit with you
HSBC credit history can be transferred to other international HSBC branches
Whether you're moving to a new country, living in multiple countries or sending your kids abroad to study, you can access global banking benefits. If HSBC already has a presence in your destination, we can seamlessly transfer your HSBC credit history to an HSBC branch.
We can also help you set up your new HSBC accounts before you have left your home country. This will save you time and effort. Your accounts will be available when you arrive at your new destination. And with enough notice, we can send your banking materials to you in advance.
How it works
The process is convenient, since your credit1 and debit cards, checkbooks and PINs will be mailed to you within 10 business days, from account opening as an HSBC Premier client, and 20 business days, from account account opening, with another HSBC relationship.
