Bank AlBilad has launched, for the first time in KSA and the Middle East, the service of opening the current account digitally via the website of Bank AlBilad from anywhere and within a short time without the need to visit the branch or submitting any documents and without the need to sign any documents for opening the account, in order to provide the best banking services to its clients easily, which reflects the Bank's keenness to provide advanced digital solutions throughout the Kingdom.

Mr. Abdulaziz Al Onaizan, the Chief Executive Officer of Bank AlBilad, said, "The bank is always keen on being the first to provide technology-based banking services for clients in KSA as per the major transformation towards digital banking and benefiting from all areas by changing and improving many processes, systems, and technologies internally and externally, when it comes to interacting with our customers by providing them with the latest digital solutions in the market.
