Deepening our partnership with Visa will speed the delivery of solutions for our individual and business banking customers and will enable us to create payment offerings that are unmatched in value and scale, enhancing our customers’ lives. Enhancing our digital capabilities and secure payment is an increasing area of focus for us as we are constantly working towards developing advanced solutions that enable our customers to make payments digitally, in a safe and secure manner.”

Over the years, we have worked together with ADIB to develop exclusive products and programs that deliver seamless, secure, and rewarding payment experiences to ADIB cardholders.
