A personal loan is an unsecured loan taken from a lender to meet different financial needs. The risk involved in a personal loan is greater as it is not secured against any asset and that is the reason, the interest rates charged are also higher. However, since no collaterals are involved, it is relatively easier to apply for personal loans as compared to a home loan, car or gold loans.

What are the types of Personal loans in UAE?

The different types of personal loans in UAE are as follows –

Personal Loan in UAE with salary transfer – Most of the loan providers in the UAE have specific criteria for availing personal loans. The most prevalent one is that you should have an existing account with the bank providing the loan.

Personal Loan in UAE without salary transfer – While most banks prefer you to have a salary account with them, some providers do not consider these criteria.

Personal Loan in UAE for self-employed professionals – If you are a self-employed professional, there are chances you can face difficulty when applying for loans in the UAE as you don’t have a fixed income. However, certain financial institutions in the UAE offer personal loans to self-employed professionals as well.
