Hi any know the rules regarding getting a visa card SEB will not help with one due to having some credit problems the problem seems to be you can use a visa card to pay for parking or some off line things as they say guess that includes petrol pumps.

So is there a way to get a Visa card or some pre paid visa card will be fine as long as it's accepted in Sweden or should I try another bank.

The main reason I want one is to pay for parking there must be some way of getting one it's a real hassle using my crap mastrocard.

Any advise much appreciated.

You can get a pre-paid credit card from any Pressbyrån kiosk. You can charge up to 1500 SEK on it.

Every bank I know gives you a Visa or MasterCard to access your money not a credit card. Try any other bank.

Yer it's odd because they where happy to give me one 2 years ago but seem to of changed there minds or I went to Nordia and they give me one don't remember seems a little crazy.

I sure don't want a credit card just a card with visa on it, the damm hassle I had one time in England trying to use my crappy mastrocard was a nightmare.
