Change in opening hours for bank branches as from Thursday 26 March 2020 in Covid-19 Context

Wednesday 25 March 2020

With a view to ensuring continuity in the provision of banking services by domestic commercial banks, the Bank of Mauritius, after consultation with the Mauritius Bankers Association, wishes to inform members of the public that banks will keep operating in the current context.

Key branches, which will be in strategic locations to ensure a fair geographical coverage, will, as from Thursday 26 March 2020, be open to the public from Monday to Friday from 10:00 to 13:00, until further notice.  These key branches will be staffed by reduced personnel and will provide basic banking services.

The internal operations and telephone-based Contact Centres of commercial banks concerned will remain operational during normal hours. A list of branches which will be open will be communicated to the public by the respective banks.  Members of the public are invited to contact their respective banks for any information.

The Bank of Mauritius strongly encourages the public to use internet banking facilities and other electronic modes of payments, and to avoid visiting bank branches where alternative channels are available.
