Why should I check my eligibility?

If you're refused a credit card, your credit rating will be affected, making it harder for you to get credit in the future.

With our free, easy-to-use eligibility tool, you can do a search of your details that won't show up on your credit report. This means you can apply for a card, knowing that you're eligible for credit.

It’ll also show you which Barclaycards are available to you.

Once you've filled in the form and submitted your details, we'll look through your credit rating to establish your eligibility.

If you're eligible, you can then choose the credit cards available to you and apply online in 3 easy steps. If you're approved, you can get your card within 5 working days.

To apply you’ll just need your basic details, address details for the past 5 years and to let us know how you intend to use the card.

Please note, the results of the eligibility tool should be used as a guide and your results may vary when you make a full application.
