What is a balance transfer?
If you have more than one credit card, a balance transfer could help consolidate what you owe, streamlining multiple monthly bills into one easy low-interest payment.
Move your balance from any card in the UAE to your HSBC credit card and you could enjoy an interest rate as low as 0% for the first 12 months.
Competitive interest rates, starting at 0% for the first 12 months

Balance Transfer Terms and Conditions and the Schedule of Services and Tariffs apply.
You may have to pay penalties if you pay off a loan/financing early.
If you do not meet the repayments/payments on your loan/financing, your account will go into arrears. This may affect your credit rating, which may limit your ability to access financing in the future.
Refinancing your loans/financing may take longer to pay off than your previous loan/financing and may result in paying more in interest/profit.
|Who can apply?|
You can apply for a balance transfer if you have both:
- a HSBC credit card
- a non-HSBC credit card that was issued in the UAE
