This year due to COVID-19, all local banks are required to implement online pre-booking for physical exchange of new notes at our bank branches to facilitate safe distancing measures during the LNY exchange period. Having pre-booking also ensures that those who have made a reservation will be able to exchange notes during the exchange period.

Reservations are required before collecting the notes at bank branches, in line with COVID-19 safe management measures.
