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), and 5X Scotia Rewards points on travel for the first three months (up to $2,500 in total travel purchases).

New cardholders can earn up to 30,000 bonus Scotia Scene+ points in your first year (that's up to $300 towards travel). First, you can earn a one-time bonus of 20,000 Scotia Scene+ points on your first $1,000 in everyday eligible purchases made within the first three months. Plus, you can earn an additional 10,000 points when you spend at least $40,000 in everyday eligible purchases annually on the card.

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.
