MANILA, Philippines — Availing of a new credit card can be time-consuming—not only do you have to submit so many documents as proof of your eligibility, you also have to provide a lot of information on the application form. Afterward, all you can do is cross your fingers and hope for the best while you wait to get approval.

However, in these uncertain times, people want to get urgent things done in the fastest, safest and most convenient way. The country’s largest foreign bank has brought the latest digital innovation that makes this all possible.

Citi has updated its digital platform to provide Filipinos with a fast, easy and flexible banking experience, that will change the way they apply for and use a credit card.

Cut short the long waiting time for card approval

Gone are the days of waiting for weeks to know if your credit card application was approved. Citi’s application process has now been reduced to just five minutes, thanks to a newly improved digital application experience with eKYC (know-your-customer).

The application leverages digital solutions like optical character recognition and identity proofing through facial recognition that will enable new customers to make their switch to a Citi credit card easy and simple, via a digital face-to-face verification.

Say goodbye to printing identification images or photocopying documents. You can simply scan and upload the required documents and get these verified in the comfort of your home. For qualified credit card applicants, approval can be instant!

Instant is the new normal

Citi credit card clients who have successfully gone through the eKYC verification can immediately use their new digital card right after being instantly approved, providing a seamless experience—from applying for a credit card to making their first purchase.

With this feature, you will be able to activate and view your card details on the Citi Mobile App.

While the physical card is still in transit, you will be provided a temporary CVV so that you can use your Citi credit card to make purchases online, set up recurring payments, pay bills and access mobile wallets to enable contactless payments.

Be done in just five minutes!
