A new Doha Bank account also comes with a suite of digital services to keep customers connected with their money and information. With the instant account opening and debit card delivery, customers can then quickly perform self-registration for Doha Bank’s Online Banking. This introduces additional convenience of accessibility to customer’s accounts, money and being able to manage finances and personal payments directly, anywhere, anytime. Online banking is also the gateway to other smart financial service solutions. For example, the Doha Bank Mobile Banking application provides accessibility from any Blackberry, iPhone or Android phone; yes, even WAP.

Once customers receive their Debit Card when at the account-opening stage, they can then access one of the widest networks of ATM machines in Qatar. Many of Doha Bank’s cash machines also provide supplementary services such as a selection of bill payment facilities and the deposit of cash and/or cheque deposits which are automatically credited to the customer’s account. 

With Doha Bank there’s so much to look forward to.
