You need to download the application form which is available on the RBH website. Fill up the application form with relevant information.

Q. Do I require any mandatory insurance cover to get this loan? If yes, what type of insurance cover do I need to take up?
A. Yes. An insurance cover is mandatory to get approval for this personal loan. This is to ensure repayment of the loan in event of death or permanent and total disability of the borrower. The RHB Bank has a panel of insurance operators to choose from. As a second option, you can choose your own preferred insurance operator who would be accepted by the bank as long as that insurance operator meets the minimum criteria of the bank.
Q. Can I settle my loan fully before loan tenure ends? If yes, what are the terms and conditions associated with it?
A. Yes. You can settle your loan fully before the loan maturity date. The bank has imposed a lock-in period of 6 months from the date your loan is approved. If you settle your loan fully within the first 6 months, then you may have to pay either an early exit fee of RM100 or 1% on your total loan amount whichever is higher. Also, the interest rate or rebate will be recalculated based on the flat interest rate where you have to pay the charges upfront. However, if you settle the loan fully after the lock-in period of the first 6 months, you do not need to pay any early termination fees.
Q. What if I am not able to pay my monthly instalments on time?
A. The bank expects you to pay your minimum monthly instalment amount on or before the due date specified by the branch. If you do not make the payment on time, then you need to pay a late payment fee which will add to your expenses. The late payment fee is 1% p.a. on your total outstanding amount. It would be calculated on a daily basis until your pay your outstanding due. The bank can also set-off the amount that you owe from your salary account.
Further if you default on repayments, then the bank may take legal action against you where you need to pay extra costs, fees or expenses that bank would acquire through the legal procedure. It is recommended that you pay your minimum due amount every month on time. If your circumstances change then contact the bank immediately to discuss your situation and any repayment alternatives.
Q. How long would it take for the bank to approve my loan?
A. The standard process time for the bank to approve your loan is 3 working days if your application and documentation meets the criteria of the bank. The bank can also ask you for additional documents or information if required which make delay the process time depending on the situation. If the bank offers the On-Spot Approval and Disbursement (OSAD) then the whole process could take an hour approximately.
