Offerings for newcomers

Here is a list of credit products that can serve people who have moved to the United States in the last five years

Find a credit card

Using a credit card in the U.S. is one of the easiest ways to build credit. People who have recently arrived in the U.S. can use their international credit history to apply for select credit cards. We partner with a range of providers who can help newcomers get credit cards.

Rent an apartment

Renting an apartment without a U.S. credit score can be hard, and often requires an increased deposit. We work with a number of tenant screening platforms to help you use your credit from another country. Ask your landlord if they use Yardi, Intellirent, or First Advantage to evaluate your rental application. Questions? Send us an email at help@novacredit.com.

Pre-qualify for an auto loan

We've partnered with Westlake Financial to help you get an auto loan in the United States. Shop from millions of vehicles and pre-qualify for financing with no impact on your U.S. credit score, all from the comfort of your own home.
