Is it possible to create an Azure free account without VISA Credit Card?

As a short answer, No you can't create a free Azure account without a credit card.

To create a free Azure account, beside the Phone option, you'll need a VALID Credit Card as a kind of Identity Verification method, it's just for identity validation, you will not be charged for any service until you decide to upgrade.


  • The Azure free account provides you free access for 12months.
  • $200 USD credit to spend for the first 30 days,
  • Access to more than 25 products that are always free.

Thank you for your prompt answer, as I understood it's only for verification, but I didn't already have a credit card for that! can I use the credit card of my colleague to sign up for an Azure free account then update the credit card later, if yes, how I can update and change credit card for Azure?
