Impact of COVID-19 on Money Transfer Services
With loved ones around the world, at this time it’s possible to feel even more disconnected from them. Our thoughts are with everyone who is affected by the Coronavirus, both directly or indirectly.
We are doing everything possible to support customers and those who are important to them. During this period, our service will continue to operate as normal without interruption.
We know our money transfer service helps you support friends and family in areas impacted by the virus, and we want you to know that we will get your money to where it’s needed without delay.
We are also working closely with our partners to ensure minimal impact on receiving partner services.
For customers using Branch or ATM deposits for account loading, due to travel and movement restrictions, you may wish to consider alternative account loading methods such as Internet Bank Transfer, POLi or BPAY.
