About payments with UAE banks
We would like to inform you that as of June 15, 2012 The Central Bank of The United Arab Emirate (UAE) demands the use of the IBAN. As a result of this it is mandatory to quote the IBAN for payments in all currency to UAE, whenever an account number is included in the payment instructions.
Should a payment not include the IBAN, it might be returned after possible deduction of third party charges. In order to avoid any delays/rejections in settling your payments and to keep any possible investigation efforts to a minimum, AS Expobank strongly recommends you to include the IBAN.
