Bank Guarantee

Enabling assurance of your payments

How does a Bank Guarantee work?

  • Step 1 - Applicant and beneficiary enter into a contract and agree that a Bank Guarantee is required
  • Step 2 - Applicant approaches ICICI Bank(issuing bank) to issue a Bank Guarantee in favour of the beneficiary
  • Step 3 - ICICI Bank issues the Bank Guarantee, and
    • Sends a financial instruction to an advising bank, which is usually located in beneficiary’s country, or
    • Couriers the hardcopy Banker’s Guarantee to the beneficiary, or
    • Notifies the applicant of self-collection at any of branches
  • Step 4 - Once the advising bank receives the Banker’s Guarantee, it will advise it to the beneficiary
