  • That depends entirely on the credit systems of the particular countries.

  • Just found out your credit score does not travel with you. I need to get my passport!

  • When you move to a new country you have to start your credit rating all over again.  When we moved to Canada, we had trouble getting a mortgage because we had no credit rating, even though we had an excellent credit rating in the UK.

  • Oh dang. I remember when I was younger someone telling me that having no credit rating is worse than having a bad one becuase they have nothing to go off of. I know I wouldn't mind starting over again with the knowledge I have now lol

  • You'd have to check with the country's website for that info, I think.
