Good news for Papua New Guinea customers with Bank South Pacific.
As an essential service provider, all its branches in PNG would operate as normal during the four-week nationwide isolation period, commencing Monday 22nd March, 2021.
Staff and customers will strictly observe the ‘niupela pasin’ and Covid-19 measures put in place by the Office of the National Pandemic Controller David Manning.
“As PNG enters the four-week nationwide isolation period due to the surge in Covid-19 cases in the country, Bank of South Pacific Ltd as an essential service provider remains committed to its customers in ensuring continuity of services,” BSP Group CEO Robin Fleming said.
BSP Group General Manager Retail – Daniel Faunt says: “For the safety of all BSP Staff including customers, ‘a No Face Mask, No Entry’ policy has been implemented across all our Branches.”
“All customers in PNG will also be required to remove sunglasses and hats upon entering our branches. Those without face masks will not be granted access. We will also continue observing social distancing of 1.5 metres between each person when in line at all our branches or when accessing other banking services like ATMs. Our branches will continue to provide essential customer service while controlling entry access into our branches.”
BSP urges all customers to also adopt all niupla pasin measures whilst outside BSP branches and in the community to help to protect themselves, their families and friends from Covid-19.
Mr Faunt said while access is being controlled into the branches, this may affect service time but they encourage customers to utilise their Digital Banking platforms – Mobile Banking and Internet Banking for transactions or school fee payments or use our Customer Self Service App for Personal Loan Application.
