Emirates NBD, a leading banking group in the MENAT (Middle East, North Africa and Turkey) region today announced that its Mobile Banking App is now available on the HUAWEI AppGallery, providing customers with added choice and flexibility. The partnership with Huawei places Emirates NBD’s Mobile Banking App on the world’s third-largest app store that has over 500 million monthly active users.
Emirates NBD Mobile Banking offers safe and secure on-the-go banking convenience allowing users to carry out their daily banking transactions or apply for new products easily. New customers can open accounts instantly by simply scanning in their identification documents. Existing users can carry out a variety of transactions such as sending money to friends and family using DirectRemit or mePay services, make bill payments to over 30 utility and other providers, update contact details, block lost cards, request for statements and cheque books or apply for a new loan or credit card.
