No, you need to apply for a new cheque book, and you’ll receive it within 3 to 5 working days. So, it is best to apply for a new cheque book when you still have some leaves left in your old cheque book.
No, all our cheque books have only 10 leaves.
The processing and clearing time for cheques depends on the type of cheque and the channel used.
All Emirates Islamic cheques have a QR code and an MICR code line to prevent cheques from being duplicated by fraudsters. If you don’t specify a beneficiary on the cheque or make a cheque payable to ‘cash or bearer’, there is always a risk that someone will get hold of the cheque and cash it.
If you suspect that a cheque has been lost or stolen, you must first file a police report for the lost or stolen cheque and then visit one of our branches with the police report to place a stop payment for any cheques that have not yet presented. Additional documents may be required at the Bank's sole discretion.
Once you open your current account, you’ll receive your first cheque book free of charge. After that, the charges depend on your banking package with us.
If the Bank has sent you a cheque book without you requesting it, just keep it or destroy it if you don’t have any use for it. You will not be charged for it.
