Apple's credit card could come to international customers following its US launch, according to Goldman Sachs International's CEO.

The Apple Card, which is both virtual and physical, was revealed at the tech giant's event Monday. Apple noted that it's teaming up with investment bank Goldman Sachs and Mastercard to release the card.

We know it'll work globally, but no mention was made of an international release. However, Goldman's Richard Gnodde later told CNBC that it's likely.

"With that product, we are going to start in the US but over time, absolutely, we will be thinking of international opportunities for it," he said Tuesday.

Apple said Apple Card will be available in the US this summer and didn't have any further details to share.

Goldman didn't immediately respond to a request for further comment.
