The bank said it will now only offer the following services to the public between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm daily until further advised:

1. Exchange of foreign currencies (see link for list of currencies exchanged

Meanwhile, for other banking services the bank said the public should rely on their commercial banks or other deposit-taking entities.
