Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank (ADIB), a leading Islamic financial institution, in partnership with Visa, the world’s leader in digital payments, has introduced the new Visa Installments Solution (VIS) for its cardholders in the UAE.
Under the terms of the agreement, ADIB Visa-covered cardholders will soon be able to opt for “Visa Installments.”

Through Visa Installments, covered cardholders can now enjoy a smooth and hassle-free payment experience while making the most of their money,” Mr. Malhotra noted.
This latest addition to ADIB’s diverse covered card portfolio underscores the bank’s commitment to delivering exceptional service to our customers and staying responsive to their changing banking requirements.
