Transfer to another local bank account

Send money instantly from your account to any other local bank account in the UAE

Local transfers are easy and instant

Transfer money easily from your accounts within the UAE by using your beneficiary account details. You may also need a routing code in some cases.

If you’re transferring to someone not on your list of beneficiaries, you can always add them as a new beneficiary first and then make the transfer once the beneficiary is added. This can take up to 24 hours. Or just use the account number you’re transferring to if it’s a one-time transfer.

Processing time

Once you place a transfer request, we process and send it over to your recipient’s bank. The bank then credits your recipient’s account with the money you have transferred. The time at which your transfer is processed will depend on when you’ve placed your request.

  • If you place the request through Online or Mobile banking before 2pm (for other currencies) and before 6pm (for AED), Monday to Saturday, it will be processed the same day
  • If you place the request through the branch before 12:30pm (for AED) and before 2:30pm (for other currencies), Monday to Saturday, it will be processed the same day

Requests received after these times are processed the next working day subject to the availability of balance and accuracy of details.

Once we start processing your transfer, the transferred amount should be credited to the beneficiary approximately within 1 working day.

Fees and charges

Local transfers are free via Online Banking and Mobile Banking.

If you visit a branch to make the transfer, charges will be based on your banking package.

Additional charges may apply based on the other bank involved.
