Chinese New Year Notes Exchange 2022: Guide to DBS, OCBC and UOB Notes Exchange Registration, Branch and Collection Period
Looking to exchange new bank notes this coming Chinese New Year 2022? Check out our guide on Chinese New Year Notes Exchange, below!
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.
Online reservations for new or good-as-new banknotes for Chinese New Year 2022 will begin on Jan 4 2022
Customers, except for the elderly aged 60 and above, or customers with disabilities, are required to make an online reservation before heading down to their selected branch to exchange for new notes.
