To combat financial fraud, the Saudi Central Bank (SAMA) has set numerous limitations on Saudi citizens and expats using banking services. From April 10, 2022, the following restrictions will apply:

Opening online account

Individual and institutional online account creation has been halted till further notice. To open a new bank account, everyone, including Saudi people, businesses, and expats, must go to a bank office. Saudi Moroor imposes four conditions on car window shades.

Adding online beneficiaries

Customers who aren’t Saudi won’t be allowed to add international beneficiaries to their accounts online. Instead, they’d have to go to one of the bank’s branches to do it.

I’m not sure how it would affect digital wallets like STC Pay and UrPay, which don’t have physical locations.

Local Transfer Limit

Individual enterprises, Saudis, and expats have a local transfer limit of SR 60,000. Saudi husband burns his wife to death with acid

Local Transfer Time

Money will no longer be transferred instantly to local bank accounts. The local transfer would take at least 2 hours so that the sender could notify an unlawful transfer to the bank and recover funds.
