As communities across the world continue to face the impact of Covid-19, we at the Bank understand the challenges our customers are facing in this time of uncertainty.
We have introduced measures for our customers, both personal and business, to help navigate this situation together.
We have initiated more frequent cleaning and disinfecting of all of our premises, and hand sanitizers have been placed across our premises including offices, branches and ATMs.
From early on, we have been sending out regular notices to remind all employees to remain vigilant and to practice good personal hygiene. Employees who are pregnant or have pre-existing medical conditions have been reassigned from customer-facing roles as required. Employees who are not feeling well have been strongly recommended to stay home.
Across the Bank, tools and resources have been provided for employees to work from home and arrangements have been made for branch employees to work in shifts to provide essential services to customers.
Many of our customers are contacting us to get information on banking services and support measures for Covid-19.
As a result, our Contact Centre is experiencing a high number of calls at the moment and we may take longer than usual to answer all your calls. If you would like to contact us using this form and we will respond as soon as possible. Or if you prefer, you can send us an SMS at 7990200 or 9990200.
We encourage you to avoid branch queues and opt for our Mobile App and Internet Banking to make everyday transactions.
Fraudsters are using the Covid-19 pandemic to scam the public – don’t become a victim. They impersonate people, organisations and even hospitals to scam people in a variety of ways and this is only likely to increase. We need individuals and businesses to be fully aware and prepared.
If you are called by someone claiming to be from any agency, NEVER provide your personal details and card numbers.
Fraudsters may also attempt to obtain your internet banking details through scam emails. Do not click on any links or open any attachments from an email that appears suspicious.
All branches and service centres including the Customer Service Centre will be closed. Safeguarding the health and safety of our customers and employees remain our priority and we encourage customers to bank from home for everyday banking.
Customers who have permission from authorities can continue to use ATMs for cash withdrawal and deposits. The daily deposit limit is MVR 100,000 for individuals and MVR 500,000 for businesses.
To ensure continued support to customers, Bank of Maldives will be providing essential services online on all weekdays. This includes processing requests for international transfers and payroll processing via email, and processing cheques deposited at ATMs.
Local bank transfers via ACH, RTGS and other bank cheques will be available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays in line with MMA’s operational changes.
