Scotiabank, Scotia Insurance and Scotia Investments will temporarily close eight branches and office locations in Jamaica from April 15, 2020 - April 30, 2020.  

Scotia Group Jamaica has announced that it will temporarily close eight branches across the island in light of the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

“As the COVID-19 crisis evolves, we will be making changes within the Scotia Group to protect the health and safety of employees and customers,” the group said on Monday, adding that the move to close the branches is part of its business continuity planning initiatives.

Scotiabank, Scotia Insurance and Scotia Investments will temporarily close the eight branches and office locations from April 15, 2020 - April 30, 2020.  

Below is a list of Scotia locations that will temporarily close in Jamaica:

  • Cross Roads
  • Oxford Road
  • University of the West Indies
  • Old Harbour
  • Ironshore
  • Christiana
  • Port Maria
  • St Ann’s Bay

All other branches will remain open at this time but will only facilitate transactions that cannot be conducted using one of the bank’s self-service channels, Scotia said. 

“We strongly encourage retail and business customers to sign up for online banking and to utilise ABMs to conduct any necessary transactions,” it added.  

The Scotia online banking and new mobile banking app can be used to transfer funds, pay bills, top-up mobile phones and check account balances at no cost 24 hours per day. 

In addition to facilitating cash deposits and withdrawals, Scotia’s full-service ABMs have been enhanced with additional features including loan and credit card payment options and are available 24 hours per day.

Scotiabank is encouraging all customers to take the necessary precautions to protect their health and safety at this time.

Temporary closures are also being implemented in other countries in the region.
