If you want to switch to another bank or you are going back to your country from UAE. It is a good practice to close your bank account.

When your account is fully operational you can close the one you have with the First Abu Dhabi Bank.

The steps are very simple but you need to make sure that there is no negative balance in your account. If you have any then you first have to clear those and then you can begin with the process.

So check your balance and if there are any dues then you can deposit money in your account to make the balance positive.
