Blue Machines Updated To Dispense New $100.00 Notes

Port of Spain, Trinidad, December 12, 2019: Republic Bank Blue Machines (ABMs) attached to branches have been updated to accommodate the new polymer notes and are operational as of today, Thursday December 12. However, due to flooding in the area the ABM at the Penal Branch has not been updated as yet.

Additionally, the Bank expects to have all its off-site ABMs updated by the weekend. It is anticipated that the availability of the new notes at the ABMs will reduce the foot traffic in branches to some extent going forward.

  • All non-mall branches: Monday to Thursday will open from 8.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m., Friday, 8.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. (no closure during the day).

  • The above hours will also apply to Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.
