    No I have no other knowledge other than their HK website that says "coming soon". But anyway still a good option for the OP if the home country they are in has this card, as a temporary way of surviving in HK until they are setup with a local bank account.

    You can judge which way the wind is blowing, but before transferring too much, just consider that the EUR to HKG exchange rate is pushing towards a ten year low. I would be considering where I need my money and for how long. Wise works just fine - that’s what I did initially.

    I would certainly not transfer all my savings in HK... Pretty much the opposite actually.

    I´ve ordered the Revolut card now, let´s see how it works. Exchange fees shall be even smaller with the Metal account, so I can just transfer what is needed for the start. No need to transfer more than needed.

    But, I am not sure about EUR, especially due to the war here
