As part of the campaign called the Al Salam Initiative, all customers who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus can avail of the bank’s financing solutions without paying for the administrative fees, including personal and property financing facilities as well as the Mazaya social housing programme.

This comes in line with the bank’s ongoing commitment to raise community awareness on the importance of getting vaccinated.

Speaking on the initiative, ASBB head of retail banking Mohammed Buhijji said, “Granting a waiver of administrative fees on all financing facilities to all our customers who have been vaccinated, is a reflection of our ongoing support to the public during the current circumstances.”

In addition to the waiver of administrative fees on financing facilities, customers will also be able to take advantage of the special financing offer ending on May 15th 2021 – from which customers receive competitive profit rates and a grace period of up to one year.

As part of the campaign, 10 lucky winners will win back up to six months’ worth of instalments.

To be exempted, customers can use either the official medical certificate or the ‘Be Aware’ app on their smartphones as confirmation of being vaccinated against Covid-19.
