About banking operations during the New Year holidays

During the New Year holidays, most offices of financial organizations, including banks, will be closed to serve individuals.

If the settlement is small, then, most likely, the branch will be closed, and you need to resolve your financial issues in advance.

On holidays it is better to use remote services, to minimize cash payments and visits to bank branches. Customers can contact the on-duty branches about:

    • receiving the ordered card;
    • information on the status of financial accounts;
    • blocking (unblocking) bank account;
    • payment of interest on a loan;
    • receiving social benefits;
    • cash deposit;
    • currency exchange;
    • pay current bills.

    If the term of the deposit ends on holidays, it will be extended until Monday, January 9th. The interest rate is kept. You can close, open, replenish deposits, withdraw interest in the online bank at any time.

    The financial institution will post information in advance on how branches and on-duty departments will work on the New Year holidays 2023. For information and advice, you can call the support service by numbers (work around the clock):
