      Hi Chai,

      Thank you for contacting Finder.

      For foreigners, the minimum income requirement to qualify for the Citibank SMRT Card is S$42,000 p.a. Alternatively, you may contact the bank directly to apply for a secured credit card, which will require you to pledge a fixed deposit. According to MAS regulations, the minimum amount of fixed deposit required for secured credit cards is currently $10,000.

      Hope this helps!
