First Abu Dhabi Bank branches to be closed for four days for system overhaul

All branches of a UAE bank formed after a merger between two of the country’s biggest financial institutions are to close for several days to allow a system overhaul to be completed.

First Abu Dhabi Bank (FAB) branches – created from the link-up between First Gulf Bank and National Bank of Abu Dhabi – will be closed from Friday, November 30, reopening on Tuesday, December 4, while a service integration is completed.

Most banking services will be unavailable during this period – but people will be able to use credit and debit cards to make purchases and cash withdrawals, the bank said in a message sent out to customers.

All incoming and outgoing payments, remittances and standing orders due during this time will be processed after the integration work has been completed.

Customers who will need to make payments during this period – such as the payment of bills – are urged to make them by November 29.
