Fees and charges

The charges for a new cheque book is determined by your Emirates NBD Banking Package. You’ll find more details on these links:


The courier service will return your cheque book to Emirates NBD after 39 days. The bank will destroy the returned cheque book and you will then need to apply for a new one.


No, you need to submit a request for a new cheque book, and you’ll receive it within 3 to 5 working days. So it’s best to apply for a new cheque book when you still have a couple of leaves left in the old one.

No, all our cheque books have only 10 leaves.
The processing and clearing time for cheques depends on the type of cheque and the channel used. Learn more here.
Our 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 the cheque falling into someone else's hands and they can then cash it.

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

Once you open your current account you’ll receive your first cheque book free of charge. After this, charges depend on your Emirates NBD banking package. Learn more here.
