  2. Timing They say timing is everything. Some situations call for patience. If you have just lost your job or have been paying payments erratically, it might be wiser to wait until you stabilize before making a credit limit increase request.
  3. Credit Score Legacy Visa does not discuss credit limit increases in terms and conditions. There is no way of knowing their preferred credit score for a limit increase.
