Can I apply for Import Financing if I do not have a credit facility with DBS?

No, you must have a credit facility with DBS before we can finance your purchases. Please contact us if you require one. 

Will DBS remind me when my loan is due?

No. The amount due will be automatically debited from your account on the due date.  Please ensure that there are sufficient funds in your account. 

Can I ask for an extension on the due date?

Yes, however, this is subject to approval. The loan period must not exceed the maximum period granted in the letter of offer. 

Can I repay the loan before the due date?

Yes, however, you will be subject to a penalty. Please contact us to find out more.
