The Maldives Islamic Bank (MIB) has introduced internet banking services to its customers on Thursday (March 12).

Maldives Monetary Authority (MMA) Governor Dr Azeema Adam inaugurated the ‘FaisaNet’ service at a ceremony at the Nasandhuraa Palace Hotel.

“The launching of our internet banking service would undoubtedly enhance the depth and quality of our services to our customers. From a broader perspective, it is our hope that it would also contribute to the development and modernization of the banking industry in Maldives generally,” said MIB Managing Director Harith Harun.

MIB explained in a press release that customers could register online for the services, which “enables them to check account balances, view and print statements, do account transfers, check clear cheque status, request for cheque book, check financing list and schedule transfers.”

“All of these services are available to customers with free registration and zero annual fee for Consumer Basic internet banking account type,” MIB said.

“In the near future, customers will also be able to make bill payments, Fithr Zakat payments, salary payments, and for business customers to request for Letter of Credit and Letter of Guarantee.”
