How to open a bank account in the UAE

Your guide to getting started

The Knowledge

According to the Dubai Government’s official online portal, UAE citizens and residents can open accounts in any bank they wish to. You will just need to provide a passport copy (or family book for UAE citizens), work or residence visa and a salary certificate or letter of no objection (NOC) from your employer or sponsor. Note that the exact procedures and requirements for this will likely differ between banks.
