How to use Enjaz Banking Service

For most of the expats, living anywhere around the globe, savings is the only goal keeping them in foreign land, away from the comfort of their home country. At the start of month, getting the hard earned money, first thing most expats do is to transfer funds to their loved ones back home. Funds are transferred via different channels such as banking channel, money transfer services like western union, money gram and online money transfer services like Skrill and Paypal.

In KSA, expats use 2 most popular ways to send money back home, i.e. Banks and money transfer services.

  • Online banking system is very easy and secured method to transfer funds from KSA to our home country. Depending on the source bank in KSA and destination bank in your country, the funds can take from minimum 1 to several days depending on different reasons. Through online banking system one can send money in just couple of minutes. The only drawback of using the banking system is that it takes days to transfer funds from KSA to home country.
  • Expats living in KSA that do not have bank accounts, need to rely on different money transfer services to send money back home. Normally these services take only a few hours to transfer the funds to home country, where your loved ones can get cash from counter.

  6. Hi.. I tried Enjaz Riyadh.. I was supposed to send money to jeddah.. But they say it’s not allowed. It should be bank to bank. How is it? My friend has a bank account alrahji is that possible I can deposit money. I don’t have bank account.

    1. Following is the description from Enjaz regarding “LOCAL REMITTANCE”. You can transfer cash from Enjaz to Enjaz with out any bank account. In your case it seems that you need to transfer cash from Enjaz to a bank account, this is not possible. I think, you can go to any Al Rahji branch and from there you can deposit cash in the bank account, even if it is in another city.

      Do not have a bank account? Need to send money urgently within the Kingdom? Yes, you are at the right place! Enjaz baking services provide you the solution which is unique in itself. It is beneficial to people from all communities living in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, whether a local citizen or an expatriate.
