Preparing BLOM Bank Egypt customers for a new banking experience

The full integration of BLOM Bank Egypt and Bank ABC Egypt is just a few months away.

To make things as smooth possible, we’ll start sending BLOM Bank Egypt debit and credit card customers replacement Bank ABC cards now – well before they are needed. [See details below].

BLOM Bank Egypt customers and their full banking services will switch to Bank ABC Egypt early next year – the exact date will be announced here in a few weeks.
