Bank Transfer AED



Had a question regarding bank transfers and hope this makes sense! I currently work in the UAE and have am from the UK. What I would like to know is can I transfer money from the UAE to my Revolut AED account and if so would I incur any fees? Would my Revolut AED account be recognised as a local account by my bank in the UAE?



You can send it to your AED wallet in revolut ,just don’t forget state reference number. Create and account in AED currency,and press on it from account menu.You will get all detail you need :slight_smile:
Revolut won’t charge you ,but bank you with UAE might do.


Hi Jon, I’m in the same position. I bank here with NBD. Have you figured out if they charge?

Thank you.



Hello gents,

I am just new to Revolut. I am trying to use Revolut as a main for the GCC area in AED, so I initiated a bank transfer from Emirates NBD to Revolut AED account (with details from the AED IBAN in Revolut). I have transfered 200 AED in hops that I would see something like 199 or 198 AED in my Revolut after a couple of days. It seems that my 200 AED turned into 170 AED in Revolut, which is an astronomical fee. Since I was planning to use Revolut as my main, I will have to ditch this plan and continue using Emirates NBD as my primary. I am so sad about this. I hope Revolut can find a way to transfer funds cheaper in the future. This isn’t benefiting users in the GCC.

Before you mention, there’s also an option to top up via my Emirates NBD card but it will not take a top-up directly into my AED account.
