Of course! You can use your card in the U.S. and internationally — wherever Visa is accepted.

Merchants in some countries may charge administration fees too.
Absolutely! You can add up to 3 additional authorized cardholders to your credit card account. You’re always the primary cardholder, so you can manage things like making payments and redeeming rewards.
