Member under the age of 18 qualifying for a Visa Credit Card loan

Can a member under the age of 18 qualify for a Visa Credit Card loan?

A credit card loan cannot be opened for anyone under 18. An Authorized User Card may be requested. The primary member and the minor should complete the Authorized User form and submit it with a written request that includes the reason the card is needed. (ex: child is traveling alone, etc.)

Being an Authorized User will not establish credit for a child (under 18 years old).
