Banks in Saudi Arabia

Here’s a list of banks in Saudi Arabia. This post might come in handy for those looking for Banking jobs in Saudi Arabia. Over the last few years there has been significant changes in the financial/banking sector in Saudi Arabia. Online banking solutions are provided and most of the banks have dedicated branches solely for ladies with female employees.

People have started opting for what’s called Islamic Banking that operates in accordance with the Islamic Law(Shariah), prohibiting the payment or acceptance of interest fees for loans. Customers are thus faced with an increasing choice of products and services and are becoming more demanding as they see banks competing to offer a higher level of service.
Opening a bank account in Saudi Arabia does involve a lot of paper work but it’s not a tedious task. If you are luck enough your company will open the account for you and all you have to do is sign the form.

Prerequisites for opening a bank account generally includes Xerox copies of the following and your photographs:
  1. Iqama
  2. Passport Copy
  3. NOC from your employer
  4. Salary Certificate
I’m happy with the service of SABB, from what I’ve heard its better and creating an account there is hassle free.

You can also submit your resume to the recruitment team at each of the bank’s head office so that you would be considered for the related work if an opportunity arises.
