The Bankers Association of Trinidad & Tobago (BATT) has confirmed that banks will operate under normal banking hours on Monday 28th February and Tuesday 1st March 2022—Carnival Monday and Tuesday, this year.

A release from BATT notes, “there will be no Carnival activities or street parades on these two days, as they are deemed normal working days. Therefore, there will be no disruption to the banks’ normal operating hours.”

“BATT continues to encourage customers to use the banks’ digital and online solutions to conduct transactions. Customers who may not have online or mobile banking services, should use the opportunity to sign up for these services by calling their bank’s contact centre,” the BATT advisory said.

It added: “We hope that you take advantage of these easy and convenient services and invite you to visit your bank’s website for further details.”
