If you were asking for the experience, it was smooth and the staffs were so friendly. I needed to open an account for myself and had been delaying it thinking it was going to be a pain in the @$$. But when I eventually did it, it was a pleasant experience. 

Just thought I would post it, for people who think its a troublesome process.

Great; Tx for sharing. :cheers:

I am surprised that it went well!! Err.. Don't get me wrong, indeed I happy that the staff were pleasant and even happier for you that it went well. But a friend of mine wanted to open a PO Box in Jeddah, went through one week of hell to get it done!!

But I guess I am might be opening one for myself now it is crystal clear.
