Seems like there is still a few banks in UAE opening personal bank accounts without utility bill
and only a UAE residency visa.

My question is. What is the address on the bank statement and do any other countries/bank accept only a
bank statement as proof of address or is UAE residents required to provide more proof than an EU resident?

ENBD does it, an address provided on the signup will show up on authenticated statement. Yes, it can be an hotel address.

Can you name these few banks please?
ENBD is one as one of the replies said. Which other banks allow this?

I opened an account with CBD and gave hotel address. Only reason they wanted it was so courier could deliver my debit card, check my ID and take my thumb print. After that everything is online with app and codes sent by SMS.

But if you had decided to pick up a debit card yourself at the bank, the address wouldn't have been needed?
I wasn't given that option. Applying online generated an SMS saying card would be printed and delivered. Got another SMS saying time, then guy came to hotel.

Actually scratch that, first time he came to hotel I didn't have my residents card, so he left. I went to bank next day, bank guy said nothing he could do as it was an 'online only' application and I had to just get another courier delivery - which went perfectly couple days later. From all of that I assume with a CBD app application there's no branch visit. Other banks may be different..

For personal account - if you have emirates id - address is not a big deal (you can put hotel or whatever address - they don't really care - they just need it so the courier can deliver you cards/checkbook).

But if you want to open a bank account for your company many banks will ask for tenancy contract/ejari + utility bill and they'll ask you for this each year.

ENBD, Mashreq Neo and such don't require a personal address in a private home. Hotels, Offices and such are usually enough.

Yes, for personal account they do not care.
Why is then everybody saying you should rent something for 6 months, get EJARI and show it to your bank in UAE? Or is that only necessary if you deregister from your taxman at home and show them proofs (EJARI, UAE tax residence certificate after 6 months in UAE...etc.)?

Is your address (building name / apt. nr. + your p.o. box number) shown on bank statements? I assume you need to open p.o. box before you open personal bank account?
