BNZ branch opening hours changing

Press Release – BNZ

BNZ’s priority remains on protecting customers and staff, and it encourages customers to use its digital, online and phone services in the first instance and only visit a branch if there is no alternative way to conduct their banking.

Please be advised of the following changes to the branch network, as of Monday 20 September:

BNZ is following Government guidelines with strict physical distancing measures in place, both inside and outside the branch, and controlled entry. All BNZ staff members will be wearing masks.

At these branches, customers are required to wear a mask and check in on the NZ COVID Tracer app or the in-branch contact tracing.

BNZ is following Government guidelines with strict physical distancing measures in place, both inside and outside the branch, and controlled entry. All BNZ staff members will be wearing masks.

Customers are required to wear a mask and we ask that they check in on the NZ COVID Tracer app or the in-branch contact tracing.

To support physical distancing requirements and to help stop the spread of COVID-19, only the following services will be available in these branches:

  • Withdrawing or depositing cash for personal customers who can’t self-serve at an external Smart ATM.
  • Setting up or changing your PIN.
  • Setting up Eftpos and Flexi Debit Visa cards.
  • Setting up mobile banking.
  • Pre-ordered change requests for business customers
  • Access to internal smart ATMs for business and personal deposits

Across New Zealand, all customers are advised to not use our branches if:

  • They, or a member of their household, have been at a location of interest, or have been told by the Ministry of Health or Healthline to self-isolate
  • They are waiting on COVID-19 test results
  • They are feeling unwell or have any flu-like symptoms.

BNZ encourages customers to use digital or phone banking options instead of visiting a branch if possible. The contact centres are open, digital banking is available 24/7 and the dedicated over 70s line remains available.

All locations, days, and hours are subject to change.

BNZ continues to follow the Government guidelines and will continue to adapt in-branch operations accordingly.

All Partners Centres will remain closed until COVID-19 Alert Level 1.

This will be the last update. Regardless of the COVID-19 Alert Level, customers are advised to check the BNZ website or contact BNZ before they go to the branch.
