Colombians having a revolut card


#1

I just ordered the card for my GF that is living here with me in London (currently on turistic visa)… since she cannot yet open a current account here in the UK I thought to order the revolut one… but… apparently she cannot have one…

Any news on that?


#2

I don’t know about Colombians being able to apply for a Revolut account or not, however I did mention that Colombian Pesos (COP) are not on the list of Revoluts transferable currencies. Probably it has something to do with that…?


#3

Not really, no. She is not interested in using COP
The thing is until she verifies her identity (as EU resident) she is limited to use only 200 pounds a YEAR!


#4

Revolut currently is available for EEA residents.

So, a touristic visa won’t help… for the same reason why she can’t open an account in UK: laws and regulations.

Once she’ll have a residency visa she will be able to aply for Revolut.


#5

Revolut is only available to residents of an EEA country. More information can be found in the faq:

They are working on expanding until then, your GF shouldn’t be using Revolut until she can provide a proof of residency.

yeah… that’s a boomer.
