Bank branches to close for National Day of Mourning

Bank branches to close for National Day of Mourning

19 September 2022

The Australian Banking Association (ABA) acknowledges the remarkable contribution of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth the Second, a life dedicated to service and duty.

The Australian Government has announced a National Day of Mourning on Thursday 22 September 2022. Each State and Territory has declared the day a public holiday under their respective legislation.

Importantly, for banks with branches and other financial institutions, Thursday will be a ‘bank close day’ with branches closed.

As a result, there will be delays to some payments, as is the case with other public holidays.

Banks will still be contactable, albeit in a reduced capacity, and customers are encouraged to contact their individual bank for further information.
