Bank accounts are really very important for the security of the money we have. At the same time with the bank account and the debit cards we can make payments online as well as offline. This can be done without using physical cash. But sometimes we decide to close the account because of so many reasons. In this guide, I have shared the steps you need to follow to close Bank Melli Iran account.
The process is very simple, but here you should note that there is no online method to close the account. So you will have to follow the offline one. The first thing you have to make sure is you have an alternative bank account. If you don’t have one then choose a good bank for you and open a new account with them. You can refer to my list of 9 questions you should ask your new bank before opening the account.
Then comes the important thing and that is you should cancel all your automatic payments. All the payments you have set up in your Bank Melli account should be canceled. You can set up the same using your new or alternative bank account. This has to be done because once the account is closed all your payments will start failing. So to avoid this you should cancel all of them.
