How to open a personal or non-resident bank account in Dubai

A personal bank account in Dubai refers to an account used for non-business purposes.

Most Dubai banks will only allow non-residents to open savings accounts as opposed to current accounts.

Non-residents will not receive cheque books; however, non-residents will be given a debit card to withdraw money. Non-residents may also be subject to minimum or maximum balances.


The requirements for opening a non-resident personal bank account in Dubai are:

  • Original bank reference letter from the personal/company bank account of the applicant from the country of origin or anywhere in the world

  • An original copy of the last six-month personal bank statements from the country of origin or anywhere in the world

  • Most banks in Dubai and the UAE require $100,000 as a monthly average balance for non-residents

  • Presence of the applicant is mandatory across the UAE

  • Passport copy with UAE entry page

  • An up-to-date curriculum vitae (CV)
