Customers of First Abu Dhabi Bank are being urged to plan ahead to avoid disruption caused by a four-day closure over UAE National Day weekend.
The bank is cutting off services from 1pm on Thursday, November 29 to the end of Monday, December 3 to carry out essential systems updates.
And users are being warned they need to make payments such as bills or remittances by midnight November 28 to ensure they are carried out in time.
Experts are also recommending customers should withdraw any cash they need before the systems go down for the long weekend.
Some account services will be unavailable during the closure, including online and mobile banking and domestic and international fund transfers.
FAB credit cards and account debit cards will be available for purchases and ATM withdrawals.
Bank bosses say they decided to carry out the IT systems integration during a public holiday to minimise disruption, reports The National.
All services be back in operation by 8am on Tuesday, December 4.
