In order to enable the multi-currency feature on your account(s) for the first time and/or fund a particular foreign currency balance in your account for the first time, you must select a foreign currency from the available currencies displayed on online banking or SC Mobile for your eligible account, and transfer funds in that selected currency from one of your existing accounts (maintained with us) to your eligible account. The funds transfer amount will be converted at a rate offered by the bank from time to time.
  8. For subsequent transfers to already enabled foreign currencies, you may choose to fund the relevant foreign currency balances in your eligible account from any of your existing account(s) (maintained with us) similar to any funds transfers that you initiate between your own accounts.
  9. Multi-currency enabled debit card:
    1. If you have a non multi-currency debit card issued on the eligible account, you will have the option to request for a multi-currency enabled Visa debit card through your online banking or SC Mobile; if you choose not to opt for the debit card you may not be able to fully utilize the multi-currency feature on the account;
    2. If you have a multi-currency enabled Visa debit card linked to your account, additional currency’s will be added on the card once the relevant currency has been enabled using online or SC Mobile;
    3. Debit card transactions in the enabled foreign currency shall be paid for by directly debiting the transaction amount from the relevant foreign currency account, provided there are sufficient funds in that currency account.
    4. In the event there are no funds or insufficient funds of the relevant foreign currency in your account, the transaction shall be paid for by directly debiting the full transaction amount from the AED denominated account, and such transaction will be subject to the relevant fees and charges as indicated in the Service and Price guide.

    5. If there are insufficient funds of the relevant foreign currency and also AED denominated account, the transaction will be declined entirely.

    6. The above clause 9d is applicable when you choose the transaction currency as the relevant currency at the point of transaction and the Dynamic Currency Conversion option is not chosen by you for such a transaction. For the purposes of clause 9d above, debit card transactions include ATM withdrawal, local and overseas purchases, contactless payment (include using digital wallets such as Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Google Pay and Fitbit Pay) and card-not-present transactions. If you choose the Dynamic Currency Conversion option at the point of transaction, the transaction amount in foreign currency will be converted into a AED amount based on the Dynamic Currency Conversion rates, and such AED amount will then be debited from your account balances denominated in AED.

 

  1. Inward remittances in foreign currencies shall be credited directly to the relevant foreign currency denominated account if the multi-currency feature for the account has been enabled for that foreign currency.

If the multi-currency feature for that relevant foreign currency has not been enabled on your account, then for inward remittance in that currency which has not been enabled, or if the inward remittance is in a foreign currency for which the multi-currency feature is not available, you agree that the relevant inward remittance funds may be converted into AED at a rate we reasonably consider appropriate and credited directly into the AED denominated account without your prior consent.
  3. You understand that once the multi-currency feature for a foreign currency has been enabled, it cannot be disabled.

  7. The type of foreign currency available in respect of the multi-currency feature for the eligible account(s) will be determined by us. We may prescribe minimum and/or maximum conversion amounts from time to time for the multi-currency feature.
  8. You acknowledge and agree that:
    1. The foreign currency market is volatile. Foreign exchange rates may fluctuate significantly and suddenly and are determined by (among other things) the supply and demand for currencies in the international foreign exchange markets, inflation rates in the countries concerned, interest rate differences between the respective countries, currency convertibility and measures (e.g. exchange controls) taken by government and monetary authorities.
