Which credit card is easiest to get in Hong Kong for a newly joined expat?

    I got my Cathay Amex and Citi Premiermiles cards within the first 2 months. Didn't need payslips, just a copy of my contract.

    Definitely the Cathay Amex (https://bit.ly/2jlTTpS) or Standard Chartered Asia Miles (https://bit.ly/2IZ5PbR) card - I got both as an expat soon after arrival without any problems.

    Neat card (download the app), you don't need anything, just a passport. It is not credit card, you deposit money into it.... If you have money.

    If you need financing, listen to others advice.

    Hi guys,
    Do you know if Cathay Amex is available for a European passport holder living in China mainland with a personal bank account in HK? Very interesting perks
    Thanks
