Subject to regulatory approvals, The Royal Bank of Scotland plc (RBS) is currently winding down its operations in the UAE conducted through two Corporate Branches in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. All client cash accounts have now been closed and we no longer provide cash teller services from the Corporate Branches.

The Dubai Corporate office remains open for cancellation of instruments

Upon closure of its UAE branches, RBS will transfer any unclaimed balances of closed accounts and funds supporting unclaimed drafts to the Central Bank of the UAE. Former clients and beneficiaries will still be able to claim funds due to them after this date subject to presentation of satisfactory evidence to support the claim and the relevant verification checks. Any such claims should be made to RBS at RBSMEAQueries@rbs.com
