Eligibility and documents

To apply for a credit card, you must be at least 21 years of age and meet the minimum income requirement for the card. Keep these documents handy to complete your application. 

How long it will take

Most of the credit card applications are processed within 1-3 working days. Once your application has been approved, your card will be delivered to you in 2-4 working days. Some applications might take more time during the credit review process due to additional information or documents required.

International deliveries may take 7 to 10 working days and a fee of AED 150 + 5% VAT will apply.


Please call +971 600 54 0000 and when prompted, say 'follow up on card application'.
Credit cards are safer and are easier to carry than large amounts of cash. You can use your credit card to shop almost anywhere, even online. They afford you a month’s worth of credit and, provided you repay your dues on time, this is free of cost. You can also use your card to take a cash advance from an ATM any time you need it. Although you should know there is a fee and interest rate that applies.
