Leumi leads the digital banking field in Israel: Will enable customers to open a bank account via the internet and mobile

As of September 2014, Leumi will enable private customers, from all banks, to open a bank account by internet or mobile only, without visiting a bank branch, subject to the approval of the Bank of Israel. By doing so, Leumi will be the first bank in the Israeli banking system to make this service possible, in order to provide customers with more accessible and advanced banking.


Account opening will be carried out in a short and simple process through the Bank’s website – on PC's, smartphones (iPhone and Android) and tablets – during which a video conference will take place with a banker. The online service is designed for existing customers of other banks or of Leumi that are over 18.


Upon completion of the process, customers will benefit from an account that enables full banking activities and services that Leumi offers its customers, including “Leumi Digital” services, subject to the limits published by the Bank of Israel.
