Premier Bank recently signed an agreement with Hajj Agencies Association of Bangladesh (HAAB) wherein the association members will open their CD or SND accounts with the bank for depositing Hajj-related fees and expenses.

Under the agreement, Premier Bank will provide specialised services to HAAB members by issuing prepaid Hajj card and dual currency debit or credit card (VISA and MasterCard) to HAAB members without any charges, said a press release.

The bank’s Managing Director and CEO M Rezaul Karim, and HAAB President M Shahadat Hossain Taslim have signed the agreement on behalf of their respective organisations.

Besides, the bank will cooperate with the Hajj agents to open bank accounts with any bank in Saudi Arabia subject to the approval of both the governments for remittances to provide house rent and other approved costs through that account.

HAAB members can deposit cash and cheque for online clearing at any branch of the bank without any charges.
