Dubai: Emirates Islamic Bank, the Islamic banking arm of Emirates NBD Group, and Roads and Transports Authority (RTA) announced on Tuesday the launch of a new Sharia-compliant visa credit card that is packed with special city transport features, and targeted at car drivers as well as metro commuters.

The new Emirates Islamic Bank RTA credit card is fully Sharia-compliant and combines the features and benefits of a regular credit card and the proprietary Nol transit application, used for making payments on the RTA transit network and at parking meters.

Customers signing up for the new card will be able to use it both as a credit card and a Nol card for making payments on the RTA transit network and at parking meters. An auto top-up feature enables cardholders to automatically top up their Nol and Salik accounts from the linked credit card account, ensuring ease of travel through all RTA-related transit points.
