American Express partnered an international credit startup
American Express has started to collaborate with Nova Credit, an international credit startup, to help the foreigners coming to the US transfer their credits to the American Express. It means that international Card Members can share their credit reports with American Express during the process of applying for an American Express US Personal Card. For now, citizens from such countries as Australia, Canada, India, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and more coming soon can share their credit reports with American Express.
American Express tends to be the first financial services corporation that offers non-American citizens to use Nova Credit’s Credit Passport technology while sharing their credit reports, immediately transferred into a US-equivalent credit report.
The whole process of application is quite simple: the applicants for a US Personal Card should authorize Nova Credit to translate their raw credit agency information into a US-equivalent credit report, and then transfer it to the American Express. This way, American Express creates the environment for credit extension for millions of people, thus building a credit history in the USA.
