Emirates NBD, like any other bank or financial institution, needs to ask customers for proof of identity before they engage with them. This is to comply with Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations and anti-money laundering regulations to limit fraud. It’s important that you keep your personal information on record with us up to date for the same reason.

Please get in touch with us by visiting one of our branches or call us on +971 600 54 0000 and we'll work with you to find a solution.
