Emirates NBD announced that it has integrated its website with UAE PASS, the secure national digital identity and signature solution, enabling individual customers to seamlessly open a bank account using their UAE PASS credentials.
Emirates NBD is among the first banks in the country to integrate with UAE PASS, implemented jointly by the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA), Abu Dhabi Digital Authority, and Smart Dubai organizations. UAE PASS enables users to identify themselves through smartphone-based authentication, as well as sign documents digitally with a high level of security. By downloading the UAE PASS app and completing registration at one of over 300 UAE PASS kiosks in the UAE, the user will have a single digital identity across various government entities, as well as various other service providers.
The integration will allow potential customers to quickly and seamlessly open a bank account on the bank’s website (www.emiratesnbd.com) by eliminating the need to manually type in personal information on online forms. Users will now be able to log in with their UAE PASS credentials when signing up for a new Emirates NBD account and forms will be automatically completed with their details along with auto-uploading of documents, thus saving time and effort.
Emirates NBD is an active participant in the UAE government’s smart services initiatives and an Official Premier Partner for Expo 2020 Dubai.
UAE PASS is the first secure national digital identity for citizens and residents. The app enables all registered individuals to access more than 5000 government, semi-government, and private sector entities’ services through their respective websites and apps and allows them to digitally sign and authenticate documents and transactions. UAE PASS also enables users to request a digital version of official documents issued to their name and to use the same to request services.
