In the United States, loan for studying abroad is a very common situation. In recent years, there have been more and more loans for studying abroad in China. When we choose loan products for studying abroad, we need more than one comparison. Here’s Xiaomei’s horizontal comparison of loan business for studying abroad in four major banks in China in the future.
As we all know, China CITIC Bank is a leader in overseas business. Embassies in the United States, Australia and other countries directly connect their business ports with China CITIC Bank. What are the advantages of China CITIC Bank in overseas loan?
First of all, when applying for visas, embassies usually require customers to provide certificates of deposit issued by banks, with a general deposit period of more than half a year. In order to help prospective overseas students to obtain embassy visas more smoothly, China CITIC Bank can provide customers with credit certificates such as Chinese and English deposit certificates and overseas loan certificates. The certificate of deposit issued by China CITIC Bank is one of the most recognized certificate of deposit issued by embassies and consulates in various countries, which is conducive to improving the success rate of the study abroad visa. For families with high liquidity requirements or bank deposits that do not meet the specified time limit, China CITIC Bank can provide a variety of forms of guarantee for overseas study loans, and issue overseas study loan certificates.
For example, for students who choose to study in New Zealand, if the deposit period is less than six months, they can handle the special account business of New Zealand study abroad remittance in China CITIC Bank. As a Chinese funded bank exclusively designated by Immigration New Zealand, China CITIC Bank can accept the opening of “special account for overseas remittance in New Zealand”. This account transforms personal credit into bank credit, simplifies the procedures of fund guarantee, and does not need to deposit in advance, which effectively improves the probability of students’ signing.
