How to Close Arab Bank Account?

Arab Bank operates in 30 countries around the globe. If you have made the decision to close the account. Then this guide is for you. This guide will help you out with the steps you need to take to close Arab Bank account. I have mentioned the method that will work in every country where this bank operates.

Before you start the process to close the bank account. You have to make sure that there is no negative balance in the account. In case you have any dues or negative balance in your account then first you have to clear it. Because the bank will not allow you to close the account until you clear all the dues.

The next thing you should keep in mind is if you are planning to switch to another bank. Then you should first open the new account or the alternative bank account. Once your account is fully operational transfer all your balance to your new bank account. Because the balance in your account should be zero before closing the account.
