Byblos Bank in Iraq


Byblos Bank S.A.L. – Iraq Branches
Byblos Bank S.A.L. became the first Lebanese bank to open a branch in Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, on 16 May 2007, extending world-class services to both local and international companies and individuals.

On February 1, 2010, Byblos Bank opened a main branch in Baghdad in order to serve clients in the national capital.

On March 12, 2012 Byblos Bank opened the 3rd branch in Iraq - Basra to extend its high-quality products and services to the new Iraqi clients in one of the countries’ most important cities.

Byblos Bank's activities in Iraq cover Corporate, Consumer, Commercial and Correspondent Banking services, including transfers and trade finance (letters of credit, letters of guarantee and documentary collections). Furthermore, Byblos Bank operates a referral business from other international banks.

As with all Byblos Bank branches in Lebanon and worldwide, the Iraq branches' operations are centralized at the Group's Head Office in Beirut and therefore benefit from the experience, expertise and state-of-the-art practices that our customers have come to expect.
