All Emirates NBD cheques have a QR code and an MICR code-line to prevent checks from being reproduced by fraudsters. If you don’t specify a recipient on the cheque, or if you write a cheque to ‘cash or bearer’, there’s always the risk of anyone getting a hold of it and cashing it.

No, all our cheque books have only 10 leaves.

We only issue cheque books in AED. To issue a cheque in a different currency you can apply for a demand draft.

The processing and clearing time for cheques depends on the type of cheque and the channel used. To know more click here

If you suspect a cheque has been lost or stolen, you first need to submit a police report for the lost or stolen cheque and then visit one of our branches with the police report to place a stop payment on a cheque which has not been presented yet. Additional documents may be required at the bank's discretion.
