Hi Hari,

When we moved from the UK to Australia we kept one credit card and let them know that we were moving. They were fine with that.

Since we were both self employed we couldn't get a credit card in Australia and now that we could get one we haven't bothered. Visa debit cards can work online just as well as credit cards.

Regards,
Karen

You should keep one, that way when you are visiting India you can use it without extra fees (i.e. currency conversion, foreign card fees). Then pay it off when you come back to AU by transferring some money to your IN bank account.
