BANK ACCOUNTS/CREDIT CARDS/MOBILE PHONES/SATELLITE TV Feb 10, 2006
Are any credit checks carried out when you want to open a bank account, apply for credit, get a mobile phone contract etc?

Unfortunately UK credit rating not too hot but solvent again now!!!

Just wondered what the position was in Dubai and if I will have any difficulty when I move next month.

Thanks for your replies...........

Use the search function buddy, this was covered plenty of times. But in short you'll need a copy of your residence visa and a salary letter when applying for credit here. They don't go so far as to contact your home country to verify credit ratings etc.
