The credit card includes free travel insurance, access to lounges around the world, and life insurance with direct debit from the account. Additionally, it offers simplified plans for loans. For international travel, the virtual card does not have fees for online and physical payments, while the use of the card has an annual maintenance fee of 25 dollars.

With a widely accepted currency internationally, the client has access to millions of ATMs worldwide with a fee of 5 dollars per withdrawal.

Furthermore, the FNB Private Wealth Credit Card offers the possibility of requesting a luxurious and durable metal card for use in physical stores in any way desired.

Who can apply for the FNB Private Wealth Credit Card?

The FNB Private Wealth Credit Card, as well as the entire range of services from the bank account, has very restricted access.

This is because the minimum requirement is a net worth of R15 million, or a monthly income in the range of R1.5 million. Regardless of whether or not you are a bank customer, the conditions are the same for applying for the complete banking service.

FNB Banking customers can contact the private consultant directly. If you already have an FNB Private Wealth account, the process is even easier.

However, if the customer has a different type of account, they will need to go through an analysis process with FNB. Therefore, they can request enrollment through the FNB Banking app.

The Private Wealth Credit Card account is managed at FNB Private Wealth offices distributed throughout the country. The hotline, 087 730 6000, provides access to premium service.

The FNB online form requests the name and identification number to start the application process, along with the phone number. The other documents required are:

  • South African identification book (with barcode) or valid South African passport
  • Passport with valid work authorization for non-South African-born citizens
  • Proof of residence in the applicant’s name and less than 3 months old
  • Latest payslip
  • Bank statements from the last 3 months

Additionally, for the purpose of verifying net worth, FNB may request additional banking and income information.
