Customers are strongly encouraged to wear a mask and will be required to check in on the NZ COVID Tracer app.

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

  • Withdrawing or depositing cash for personal customers who can’t self-serve at a Smart ATM.
  • Setting up or changing your PIN.
  • Setting up Eftpos and Flexi Debit Visa cards.
  • Setting up mobile banking.

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 and online, and the dedicated over 70s line remains available.

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