FAQs

You can open an account in the UAE either by physically visiting a branch of the bank, filling in the required form and providing your documents or you can apply for and open a bank account online. The option to open a bank account online is not available with all banks but is offered by some of the leading banks in the UAE including Emirates NBD, Mashreq Bank and so on.
The main documents required to open a bank account in the UAE are the passport, visa, and Emirates ID. Both originals and copies are required. Depending on the type of account being opened other supporting documents may be required. For instance, to open an account to have your salary transferred a salary transfer letter from your employer may be required. To open a current account for your business you would need to provide trade license copies and other company related documents.
An inactive bank account can be reactivated by visiting the bank and providing the required documents to reactivate the account. These documents are usually the same documents required to open the account – passport and visa (originals and copies) and Emirates ID.
Many bank accounts always require the account holder to maintain a minimum balance in the account. In such bank accounts if the balance maintained in the account goes below the required minimum balance amount, then a fee is charged to the account holder. This fee is deducted from the available balance in the account at the time it is levied or the next time the funds are available in the account. To avoid these fees, it is always advisable to ensure the minimum balance level is always maintained in the account.
To close your bank account, you will need to visit a branch of your bank and fill in the required account closure forms. You would be required to withdraw or move out any available funds in the accounts prior to the account being closed.
