Global connectivity and seamless access to your money.


We all have different priorities. If 24/7 availability to your money anywhere in the world is your priority, we have made it easier than ever with our international banking services.

Priority Services


Designated international banking centres worldwide
Simply present your Priority Banking cards at over 200 designated centres across Asia, Africa and the Middle East to enjoy:

  • Use of exclusive Priority Banking Centre lounge and meeting rooms
  • Local and offshore banking information upon request
  • Preferential foreign currency exchange rates

Emergency cash services
Unexpected accidents like losing your wallet can be inconvenient, but not if you are a Priority Banking customer. That's because with a simple call to your home phone banking centre, we can arrange for emergency cash to be delivered to our Priority Banking Centres worldwide.

Pre-arrival account opening
As our Priority Banking customer, your needs are always anticipated. For example, if you're relocating to another country, you can enjoy the convenience of our Pre-Arrival Account Opening service. Simply give us the details ahead of time and, subject to local regulations, your new accounts will be opened and ready when you arrive.
