Hi Guys,

I'm moving to dubai in 6 weeks, and was wondering if there are any recommendations for banks for off-shore accounts etc. I've heard lloyds TSB is quite good, and they seem to have a large presence in dubai?

Thanks

Lloyds & HSBC offshoreare OK, but only ifyou have large sums to deposit with them (GBP 60k for HSBC & GBP25+ for Lloyds). The offices here are not really for offshore accounts. Otherwise there are numerous other banks with branches in the Isle of Man that are better for smaller sums and with lower fees.

For a UAE bank account Lloyds & HSBC are no better than other banks when it comes to service and they are part of the global organisations only when it suits them.
