Maldives Monetary Authority (MMA) and Banks will be opened on Sunday and Monday (19th and 20th April 2020) for essential banking services only. MMA will be open from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm, but will not offer services to the general public.
This was announced by MMA following the implementation of the 2-week long lockdown on the Capital Male region including Hulhumale and Villigili.
Essential services accessible from banks during these days include TT requests, Payroll requests via ACH/RTGS transfers, Letters of Credit, and overseas money transfer services.
The central bank advises all customers to submit their requests with supporting documents via online modes provided by the respective banks, to avoid physical movements. The measures taken by MMA and the banks are necessary to limit contact in this lockdown situation, and the support of the public is necessary to ensure this.
