UAE Switching System (UAESWITCH)

The Central Bank of the UAE introduced UAESWITCH in 1996 to link the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) network of all banks in the UAE, enabling customers of different banks to use any ATM and Point of Sale (POS) facilities in the U.A.E.

The UAESWITCH provides regional and international connectivity with other similar national systems. Currently, the UAESWITCH is connected to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states, known as the GCCNet { } and  to the China Union Pay (CUP) system. Such interconnectivity allows the cardholders of these different systems to use their services interchangeably.


The efficiency and governance of the system are ensured by compliance with domestic and international standards, and the CBUAE’s Rules document.

  • Obtain the necessary CBUAE licences and adhere to its regulatory controls
