How HSBC can help

To help make the transition as easy as possible we can set up an account before you arrive in the UAE.

  • Instant Account Number
  • 24-hour Account Kit Delivery

Moving to a new country, exploring the city and setting up home means you will need local currency readily at hand. You may also still have financial commitments in your home country such as mortgages, school fees or investment plans. Either way you will want to easily transfer money back and forth, most likely also between currencies.
