Visitors to the UAE will now have the option of choosing to carry out dynamic currency conversion of their cash withdrawals when using their Visa card at any Emirates NBD ATM across the country.
The initiative follows a successful pilot by Emirates NBD in partnership with Network International, Visa and technology provider Planet.
Non-UAE Visa cardholders will now be able to view the exact conversion amount and fees in their home currency before making a cash withdrawal.
The service will be rolled out to over 1,000 ATMs, a statement said.
This will be powered by Planet’s currency conversion solution, covering over 130 foreign currencies and integrated by Network International across Emirates NBD’s ATM network country-wide.
Suvo Sarkar, group head – Retail Banking & Wealth Management at Emirates NBD, said: “Emirates NBD is committed to making banking easy, accessible and more convenient for UAE residents and visitors alike. We are pleased to launch this service in partnership with Network International, Visa and Planet with the aim to better facilitate cash withdrawals for visitors to the UAE through our extensive ATM network.”
Samer Soliman, managing director – Middle East, Network International, added: “We are pleased to offer seamless and transparent currency conversion to our clients with coverage of over 130 currencies. This initiative will add value to our clients and we look forward to future collaborations that support our commitment to enhance the UAE’s banking and payment ecosystems.”
