About This Card

The Scotiabank Passport Visa Infinite Card is a travel rewards credit card. You must make a minimum of $60,000 a year or have an annual household income of $100,000 to qualify for it.

This rewards card doesn’t require applicants to be a Canadian citizen or have a credit history to qualify. Permanent residents or foreign workers with at least six months left on their permit are eligible.

Most rewards cards open to this demographic don’t offer nearly as rich a rewards program.

With the Scotia Rewards program, cardholders earn 2 Scotia Rewards points for every $1 spent on eligible grocery stores, dining and entertainment purchases. You also get 2 points for every $1 spent on daily transit purchases (including buses, subways, taxis and more). And you earn one Scotia Rewards point on every $1 spent on all other purchases. 

Plus, there's no annual fee in the first year (including supplementary cards).

New cardholders can earn up to 40,000 bonus Scotia Scene+ points in your first year (that's up to $400 towards travel).

If you’re a frequent traveller, this card offers a sizeable suite of benefits that you’ll appreciate.

For one, cardholders don’t get charged foreign currency conversion markups on purchases, whether you make purchases online or outside of Canada. Only the exchange rate applies.

Other perks include complimentary membership to Avis car rental services, access to Scotiabank’s own travel concierges, complimentary airport lounge access, and access to hotels in the Luxury Hotel Collection.

Even if you’re not planning any destination holidays, this may still be a good card for you.

There's no fee for your first supplementary card, but each one after that costs $50. 

Why apply for the Scotiabank Passport™ Visa Infinite* Card?

Book easily, redeem easily - Redeem for travel anywhere, anytime, with no travel restrictions.

No foreign currency charges - Holders of the Scotiabank Passport Visa Infinite Card don’t get charged extra for making a purchase in a foreign currency — even if it’s made online. Only the exchange rate applies.  

Travel easy - The Scotiabank Passport Visa Infinite Card offers a wealth of travel and rental car insurance that covers you in the case of trip cancellation, flight delays, travel accidents, lost baggage, and rental car loss and damage. You’ll also get a complimentary Avis Preferred Plus membership, which you can use to get 25% off car rentals.  

Travel in style - Get complimentary access to airport lounges with your Priority Pass membership. You have six free visits per year.​

Plan a staycation in a snap - Not planning any vacations this year? This card can help you plan a relaxing staycation. Scotiabank Passport Visa Infinite cardholders can redeem Scotia Rewards points for SCENE points. Be a good date — pick up dinner and a movie.
