Credit Suisse decides not to give a MasterCard because of permit B

I’ve been working in Switzerland for several months. Right after my arrival here I hurried to open an account at Credit Suisse. I managed to do it with no problems at all, troubles started later on.

Several days ago I received my Permit B, and the bank turned down my request for MasterCard, as it requested a Permit C. I was not happy with this decision, as I often shop online. It was even stranger, as six months ago my friend received a card with the same type of permit.

May be it’s some kind of sanctions, like not opening a MasterCard to Russians?

So, the bank is not easy to deal with. This opinion is confirmed by opinions of my acquaintances who were served by this bank. It was them who advised me to opt for UBS. After opening an account there, I received two credit cards, MasterCArd and Visa.
