Emirates Islamic has announced its new mobile banking app, which includes a range of new features including the ability to remit money to India in less than a minute.

The launch is one of the initiatives under Emirates Islamic’s digitalisation drive to address the growing needs of digital savvy customers in the UAE, it said in a statement.

The redesigned Emirate Islamic mobile banking app includes over 25 new services including the recently launched QuickRemit, a digital money transfer service that will enable customers to remit funds to India in 60 seconds at zero processing fees.

It also gives customers the ability to instantly open a current account online across 11 currencies, management of credit card activities including blocking, activating and unblocking and a Cash on Call facility enabling customers to transfer up to 80 percent of their card’s available limit to their bank account.

Wasim Saifi, deputy CEO - Consumer Banking and Wealth Management, Emirates Islamic said: “As Emirates Islamic continues to lead the way in digital banking, the transformation of our mobile banking app was a natural progression. With its multitude of new features and a more user-friendly, intuitive interface, we want to enable our customers to bank at their convenience, anywhere and anytime.”
