In person perhaps but online you would need a visa debit card.

You get assessed if you can have a tab and that includes a credit check separate from one for opening an account.

You mean Visa Credit or Debit?
And if I'm an international student, what can I use to do the Credit Check?

There are such things known as Visa Debits, they're like debit cards that can be used where visa is accepted sort of deal.
Here are all the various thing you can use for a credit check:

If you already have an account, there won't be a credit check.

They don’t do a credit check if you already have a postpaid account as q said.
But credit card is required for online order.
